Experimental plane crashes into hanger near Wolf Lake

    Juneau, Alaska (KINY) - A Utah man is considered stable after his Kit Fox taildragger crashed into a hanger Monday afternoon.

    State troopers, Mat-Su Fire, FAA, LifeMed, and EMS responded to the Wolf Lake Airport Monday at 12:04 pm after a report of an airplane crashing into a hangar.

    Initial investigation revealed Charles Story, age 60 of Utah, was operating an experimental Kit Fox taildragger aircraft when due to unknown circumstances his plane crashed into a hanger on the airstrip.

    LifeMed was currently at the airfield when Story’s plane crashed, and performed life-saving measures until EMS could arrive to the scene.

    Story was transported to a local hospital with serious physical injury but was in a stable condition, according to the dispatch report.

    Alcohol or drugs did not appear to be a factor.

    NTSB responded later to the scene and took over case responsibility.
