Tegerdine was transported to Central Peninsula Hospital for treatment and told investigators she was “experiencing mechanical issues with the flight controls immediately prior to the crash.” The Federal Aviation Administration Flight Standards Service and National Transportation Security Board were notified and are continuing the investigation. 27-year-old Charley Tegerdine of Sterling was the only person on board the plane, which was seen going down at about 3pm by another pilot. Alaska State Trooper spokeswoman Megan Peters… “One plane witnessed another plane go down and then a family member of the other plan that witnessed the plane called. We were able to figure out that the location was at Morgans Landing outside the Sterling area,” said Peters. “There was a sole pilot and it sounds like they were transported to the local hospital.”last_img
