  • Stranded air boater..

    Was flying with a friend Sat from Mcgrath thru Rainy Pass when I happen to look down and see TWO SOS's in the sand along with a smoky fire and a pole with a flag on it. It was on the Kichatna a few miles up from the Yenta. We did some circles but couldn't land. Well, could have landed but wouldn't been able to get out. Looked like a air boat tied up probably broke down. We called it in and it looked like they got rescued....

    Location: Yentna River
    Case number: AK12227293
    Type: Search and Rescue
    Text: At approximately 1000 hours on 8/13/12, Lori Kraft contacted AST and
    reported her friends, Edward (age 47) and Lisa (age 45) Stratton of Palmer
    were overdue from a trip to their cabin on the Yentna River. The Stratton
    =92s had left on Thursday 8/9/12 and were supposed to return yesterday. Kra
    ft had attempted all telephone numbers and went to the residence prior to c
    ontacting AST. Troopers located the truck and boat trailer in the parking l
    ot at Deshka Landing. The Stratton's were located on the Kichatna River and
    transported by Helo 1 back to Deshka Landing.

    Dam, that sucks and will be a lengthy recovery up that far.
    Trailblazer, why didn't you contact AST immediately as it sounds like they were in need of help as far as you were concerned. (Or did I misunderstand?)
