    A small passenger plane nearly crashed into a pond while landing in the Aleutian Islands (Alaska) on Thursday, according to KUCB, a local radio station.

    At least four people were injured after a PenAir flight en route from Anchorage to the city of Unalaska went off the runway and almost crashed into a pond near Unalaska's airport on the evening of 17 October, KUCB reported.

    Unalaska's Department of Public Safety has announced a road closure for the area. The public is asked to avoid Airport Beach Road between Delta Way and Tundra Drive.
