ANCHORAGE - A Yute Air Cessna 207 carrying 2 passengers had to make an emergency landing on snow covered tundra Wednesday afternoon, 3 miles north of the village Akiachak.

Troopers say the incident happened less than 2 weeks after another Yute Air Cessna 207 carrying 5 passengers performed an emergency landing near the community of Tuluksak.

Nobody was injured in either incident.
