Lanai crash survivor: Plane made 'extreme bank'

WAILUKU, Hawaii (AP) - A police report says a man who survived a Lanai crash told authorities the plane made an "extreme bank to the right" after takeoff.

According to a statement provided to police from a Transportation Security Administration supervisor who spoke with the survivor, everything happened quickly and the man was thrown from the plane.

The pilot and two women working for the Maui County Planning Department were killed in the fiery Feb. 26 crash. Three men who are also Maui County employees were hospitalized with burn injuries.

The Maui News ( ) reported Thursday the unidentified survivor told the TSA supervisor that after he was thrown from the plane, he saw two men lying on the ground and two women still in the burning plane. He says he didn't see the pilot.
