TRAPPER CREEK, Alaska — Four people died when two small planes collided over Alaska, authorities said.

Alaska State trooper spokeswoman Megan Peters says four bodies have been recovered from the wreckage of Saturday's crash.

One of the aircraft landed safely after the accident near Trapper Creek, while the other crashed in flames.

Authorities initially said at least two people were killed, but later announced that there were four confirmed deaths.

Federal Aviation Administration says the Cessna 180 that crashed was destroyed by the impact and fire. The second plane was able to return to Anchorage International Airport, about 80 miles to the south.
