Located across the Tongass Narrows from Ketchikan is Annette. It is the home of the only reservation in Alaska, Metlakatla. During the war, it was used for a refueling site, and until the airport was built on Gravina Is., it was where commercial planes landed. You had to take a Grumman Goose to get to Ketchikan. It was here in Oct. 1947 that the Pan American commercial flight crashed.
