My heart and prayers go out to the families of those lost in the accident. Small airplane travel is a way of life for many in Alaska. We travel to and from remote parts of the state on these planes every day. Compared to the number of flights per day in the state the accident rate is very low. I'm not trying to say any accident is acceptable, just that I hope this accident will not affect those of you who otherwise might enjoy a flight seeing tour in our great state.
