Pilot injured in Alaska crash

SLEETMUTE, Alaska -- A Sleetmute pilot was injured in crash during a test flight.
Alaska State Troopers say 64-year-old Henry Hill at about 11 a.m. Thursday was conducting a maintenance test flight of a Cessna 206.
The airplane crashed just south of the Sleetmute Airport runway in a heavily wooded area.
Troopers say the airplane was demolished.
Hill hiked to Sleetmute and took a commercial flight to Anchorage. He was treated and released for chest pains and a bloody nose at a hospital.
Sleetmute is a southwest Alaska community of 84 on the Kuskokwim River. It's 66 miles northeast of Bethel and 243 miles west of Anchorage.
