  • A boat pulls the Taquan Air float plane to shore in Ketchikan Alaska

The craft's pilot and lone passenger died after the Beaver floatplane, which was operated by Taquan Air, crashed into Metlakatla Harbor around 4 p.m., Ketchikan Gateway Borough spokesperson Deanna Thomas said in a news release.

Alaska floatplane operator Taquan Air suffered its second deadly crash in a span of eight days when an aircraft with two people aboard reportedly plunged into Metlakatla Harbor late Monday afternoon.

No one else was on the plane, the statement read.

Thomas says the names of the deceased won't be released until their families have been notified.

Monday's crash followed the May 13 midair collision of a Taquan Air Beaver floatplane with another floatplane.

A Coast Guard spokeswoman said they launched two 45-foot Response Boats from Coast Guard Station Ketchikan and one Air Station Sitka Jayhawk Helicopter to assist with the search but local good Samaritans and local emergency responders were able to assist before Coast Guard arrived on scene.

Taquan Air officials did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
