Two seaplanes carrying tourists from the same cruise ship have collided in south-eastern Alaska, with at least four people dead and two missing.

One plane was carrying 11 people when it hit the other, which had five people aboard, near Ketchikan, the Associated Press reports.

Ten of those aboard the first plane survived and were taken to hospital.

Three of those killed were aboard the other aircraft, while it is unclear which plane carried the fourth victim.

While not a frequent thing with tourist aircraft, it is common with GA aircraft. . . .

Sad to hear this. Saw it on the news. Alaska gives you one chance . . . .
