    The Alaska Air National Guard rescued three people from the remote site of a plane crash north of Mount Susitna late Saturday. No injuries were reported.

    At 1:30 p.m. Saturday, the Alaska Rescue Coordination Center was notified that an emergency locator beacon had been activated in the area of Beluga Mountain, according to a release from the Air National Guard.

    The coordination center used beacon registration information to determine that the emergency signal was linked to a Piper Super Cub that had taken off from Anchorage on a trip to the Beluga Mountain area.

    An Alaska Air National Guard HH-60 Pave Hawk helicopter staffed by a team from the 212th Rescue Squadron from Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson searched for the plane and quickly found the occupants 1.2 miles from the crash site.

    The three people were taken to an Anchorage hospital but were released “in good condition” with no injuries, according to the news release.

    There’s no word yet as to what caused the plane to crash or the condition of the aircraft.

    Does it appear that all three souls were aboard the Super Cub? Certainly possible . . .

    Grizz, your right. I live on Alexander Creek and almost feel like it's Anchorage International when I want to fly in or out of the Homestead. There's enough Townies running around shooting up the woods I'm thinking it's almost safer to go to town! LOL

    Speaking of rescues, FP, have you heard from (or even still in contact with) your grandson's father since Sunday?

    Only in a round about way through Christina. His phone and gear are all on the bottom of Lake Louise.
    It would be a good one for the boating section.....
