On November 20, 2022, at approximately 12:00 pm, the Alaska State Troopers were notified of a plane crash approximately 10 miles South of Bethel.  Local Bethel pilots had already begun responding to the area before the notification of the Alaska State Troopers.  A preliminary investigation revealed that a Yute Air Cessna 207 was flying between Goodnews Bay and Bethel when it lost engine power and crashed.  Six people were on board the commercial flight at the time of the crash, and none of the occupants reported any injuries.  All parties were safely retrieved from the crash site by aircraft landing nearby.  The NTSB was notified.
