This today from the U.S. Coast Guard on a Super Cub that ran out of fuel and made a hard landing on Kayak Island:
CAMP DENALI — The U.S. Coast Guard successfully rescued two people Sunday after it received word from the 11th Air Force Rescue Coordination Center (RCC) that a small plane had suffered a hard landing on Kayak Island, approximately 49 nautical miles southeast of Cordova.
Around 5 p.m. Alaska State Troopers contacted the RCC, manned by Alaska Air National Guardsmen, about an experimental Super Cub that was in distress on Kayak Island. The passengers on the plane had activated their SPOT personal locator beacon. The SPOT beacon has a 911 emergency feature that contacts the International Emergency Rescue Coordination Center, which then contacts local law enforcement when someone is in need of assistance. Troopers got word that the small plane had run out of gas and took a hard landing.
The RCC tasked the Coast Guard, which has assets staged in Cordova this time of year, to rescue the two people.
