ANCHORAGE- Federal accident investigators say a small plane crashed on takeoff from a remote beach in Alaska's Katmai National Park and Preserve, and no injuries were reported among the six people on board.

The National Transportation Safety Board says the Cessna 206 operated by Homer-based K-Bay Air crashed Sunday evening at Kamishak Bay and ended up in the surf.

NTSB investigators are still trying to determine how the pilot and five passengers got out of the plane.

The head of the NTSB's Anchorage office, Clint Johnson, says investigators have not yet interviewed the pilot and don't know details such as the extent of damage to the plane. The cause of the crash also is unknown.

The area is a popular destination for bear-viewing excursions.
