11 killed in Hawaii twin-engine plane crash

AFP, Washington

A light aircraft crashed in northern Hawaii, killing all 11 people aboard, authorities said on Saturday.

The twin engine King Air plane went down Friday evening near an airfield on Oahu island’s North Shore, according to Hawaii’s Department of Transportation (HDOT). “Authorities have confirmed there were 11 people on board the plane that went down soon after takeoff from Dillingham Airfield with no survivors,” the department said on Twitter, after initially reporting nine deaths. Federal inspectors were investigating, HDOT added.

Honolulu Fire Department Chief Manuel P. Neves said the aircraft was a skydiving plane that crashed at 6:30 pm (0430 GMT) on takeoff, according to local news channel Hawaii Now.

TV footage showed flames billowing into the air from the wreckage.
