Just as pilot Felix Maguire was about to touch down in Point Hope, north of Kotzebue, a commercial plane almost nosed onto the runway from a taxiway.
The commercial pilot hadn't been using the proper radio frequency to pick up Maguire's approach, and he didn't wonder why the runway lights, triggered by Maguire, had come on. "That's bad pilot training," said Maguire of the incident two years ago.
