9 killed as sky-diver plane crashes on Oahu’s North Shore

A small plane crashed while on a skydiving excursion in Oahu and erupted into flames, killing all nine people aboard, Hawaii authorities said.

Both the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) and the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) have launched an investigation into the cause of the accident, which involved a Beechcraft BE65 King Air.

There were no survivors in the crash of the King Air plane, Hawaii Department of Transportation spokesman Tim Sakahara said.

The twin-engine aircraft went down close to Dillingham Airfield near Mokuleia in Honolulu County.

The aircraft was operated by the Oahu Parachute Center.

According to Hawaii News Now, the crash is one of the deadliest civilian airplane disasters in Hawaii's modern history, with nine people also dying in a crash in 1992.

A twin engine aircraft has gone down near Dillingham Airfield with six fatalities being reported by first responders.

"There was a fire close to the fence line, we extinguished the fire, so luckily because it was accessible we could get to the fire right away", Neves said.

The plane was engulfed in flames when firefighters made it to the crash site about an hour drive from Honolulu, Neves said.
