JUNEAU- Two men and a dog escaped from a small plane that made a water landing and sank north of Juneau.
   
Alaska State Troopers say the aircraft sank Sunday morning in about 450 feet of water in Saginaw Channel.
   
Troopers say the engine failed after takeoff. KTOO reports (http://bit.ly/YWY5gb) pilot Robert Holmes turned back toward the beach, but the plane could not make it to shore and wound up being landed in the water.
   
Holmes and the other man in the plane, identified as Garrett Richardson of North Dakota, were picked by two Juneau residents who were heading out to fish Sunday morning.
