"We have witnesses that say it was inbound so we're not sure right now [whether it left the airfield], we're gathering information," he added.

HONOLULU (AP) — A skydiving plane that crashed in Hawaii, killing 11 people, was involved in a terrifying midair incident three years ago in Northern No one aboard survived the Hawaii crash , which left a small pile of smoky wreckage near the chain link fence surrounding Dillingham Airfield, a

"Casey Williamson was one of a kind who lived life to the fullest. He was a free spirited lover of life and people," his family said in a statement. "He was a friend to all he met. His smile and love for life was contagious. Our family will not be the same without our sweet Casey."

There were at least six employees of the sky-dive company on the flight.

"It is very difficult," he said. "In my 40 years as a firefighter here in Hawaii this is the most tragic aircraft incident that we've had. We've had some helicopters with the military, but this is a civilian plane that went down with that many people on board."

One man who was hiking in the area of the airfield said he saw fire trucks, police and helicopters rush to the scene. When he got closer to the scene he spoke to a couple who saw the plane take off.

"I talked to a couple on my way from the other side [of the airport]; they said they saw the plane, it looks like it was taking off and it looked a little wobbly and that's the last they could see of it," eyewitness Jonathan Keating said.

"With extreme sadness HDOT reports there were 9 souls on board the King Air twin engine plane that went down near Dillingham Airfield with no apparent survivors," the DOT tweeted.

The coroner's officer in Hawaii later told the FAA that no one survived the crash.

There was a more recent military plane crash with more casualties: a C-130 crash in Mississippi in July 2017 that killed 16.

Sixteen people were also killed in a hot air balloon accident in Texas in July 2016.
