The NTSB says in a factual report that surviving pilot Kevin Earp, of Eagle River, told investigators he did not hear the other pilot on the frequency commonly used in that area.
Earp told the NTSB he didn't see the other plane carrying Corey Carlson, his wife and their two children until moments before the collision on July 30, 2011, near Talkeetna.
The NTSB says Earp told investigators he steered his plane up and to the left, but it was too late. He wasn't injured and was able to fly to an Anchorage airport.
