ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - Two pilots suffered injuries Sunday in airplane crashes.

Alaska State Troopers say 60-year-old Bruce Junes of Anchorage crashed a Stinson 108-3 at the Knik Glacier runway. Troopers took a call on the crash just before 12:30 p.m.

Junes was transported to Providence Medical Center in Anchorage with what troopers say were non-life-threatening injuries.

A passenger on board was not hurt.

Troopers shortly before 9 p.m. took a 911 call of a crash at the Talkeetna Airport.

After 20 minutes of searching, emergency responders found 54-year-old David Meyers of Palmer in trees near the north end of the runway.

Troopers say he had suffered serious injuries but was conscious and alert.

He was transported by Life-Med helicopter to an Anchorage hospital.

His 1970 Champion 7ECA was extensively damaged.
