Hawaii is planning crashes while on a skydiving excursion, killing all nine aboard



The King Air twin-engine plane went down Friday evening near Dillingham Airfield with no apparent survivors, tweeted the Hawaii Department of Transportation .

Honolulu Fire Department Chief Manuel P. Neves said.

When firefighters arrived, the plane was engulfed in flames and they worked to extinguish them. Witnesses saw the plane coming inbound before it went down a fence, away from the runway, Neves said.

"This is the most tragic aircraft incident that we've had." Neves told CNN affiliate KGMB.

The names of the passengers have not been released.

The Federal Aviation Administration wants to take over the investigation.

The airfield is a general aviation airport operated by the department under a 25-year lease from the US Army, Hawaii's government website says. The state leases 272 acres of the 650-acre Dillingham Military Reservation and operates the single 5,000-foot runway for commercial glider and sky diving operations.

This is an ongoing story. More updates to come.
