TALKEETNA- An Alaska Air National Guard spokeswoman says a helicopter crew has rescued two men from the wreckage of a plane crash in an area west of Talkeetna.

 

Spokeswoman Kalei Rupp says an F-22 flying at 35,000 feet picked up a distress call Monday afternoon, and the Federal Aviation Administration picked up another distress call. The Air Force helped localize the call from the plane's emergency locator beacon.

 

The men were not hurt. They were released to Alaska State Troopers.
