Nine people on board the twin engine aircraft died Friday night in a crash on Oahu's North Shore, officials said.

Police said the plane was fully engulfed in flames when first-responders arrived after 6:30 p.m. Friday, Hawaii News Now reported. Officials say there were no survivors in the crash at Dillingham Airfield. "At this time our thoughts and prayers are with the family and friends of the victims".

Hawaii's Department of Transportation confirmed on Twitter that the King Air plane, a type of American-built small utility aircraft, had nine people aboard when it crashed.

The plane was used in a sky dive operation, and Neves said some family members of those on board waited at the airport for the plane to return.

Neves said the crash occurred near the perimeter fencing of the small airport.

Neves said many details are still not known about the flight.

"It is very hard", he said. "We've had some helicopters with the military, but this is a civilian plane that went down with that many people on board".

At this time it is not clear if the plane was landing or taking off when it ran into trouble.
