Sleetmute pilot, Henry Hill, was injured in crash during a test flight Aug. 15. Alaska State Troopers say 64-year-old Hill was conducting a maintenance test flight of a Cessna 206.
It was about 11 a.m. when the airplane crashed just south of the Sleetmute Airport runway in a heavily wooded area.
The airplane was totaled in the wreck.
Hill then hiked into Sleetmute and took a commercial flight to Anchorage. He was treated there and released for chest pains and a bloody nose.
Sleetmute is located on the banks of the Middle Kuskowkim River near the tributary Holitna River.
