On August 7, rescue crews searched throughout the day for the occupants of a Piper Super Cub located upside down and partially submerged on the Knik Arm mud flats. Swift-moving, murky waters and changing tides may have moved the plane from where it went down.

Safety Tips for Avoiding a Plane Crash
When flying aircraft, take weather forecasts and reports very seriously. Do not “brave” the elements because the result can be fatal. Make sure your pilot has experience and make sure the company you are flying with is thorough in their pre-flight inspections. All-in-all, follow your instincts and do not put yourself in a situation that you feel is dangerous.
An airplane collision is almost always fatal. If you or a loved one have survived a plane crash or if you have a loved one who did not survive, you may be entitled to compensation for your pain and suffering, lost wages, medical expenses, and emotional distress.
