     In a statement, Era Alaska officials said the airplane – a 16-passenger Beechcraft – experienced a malfunction of the landing gear and came to a stop in the middle of the runway. The aircraft remained on the runway until all 13 passengers and two crew members were able to evacuate. No one was reported injured in the incident, which occurred at about 3:30 p.m.

     The accident is under investigation form the Federal Aviation Administration and the National Transportation Safety Board.
