WEB EXTRA: Other fatal plane crashes in Hawaii over the last decade

HANAPEPE, KAUAI (HawaiiNewsNow) - The Skydive Kauai crash Monday is the deadliest airplane accident in the islands over the last decade.

All five people on board were killed in the crash, which happened shortly after takeoff.

Here's a look at the other fatal plane crashes in Hawaii since 2006:

  • Feb. 26, 2014

A chartered plane carrying a pilot and five Maui County employees crashed moments after takeoff from Lanai Airport about 9:30 p.m.

The pilot and two passengers were killed. Three were seriously injured.

The NTSB later determined pilot error was a factor in the crash.

  • Dec. 11, 2013

A Makani Kai airplane crashed into the water shortly after taking off from Kalaupapa with seven passengers and the pilot on board.

State health director Loretta Fuddy was in the plane and died in the water. Her cause of death was listed as an irregular heartbeat triggered by stress.

Two passengers and the pilot also suffered injuries.

In a report released earlier this month, the NTSB said the pilot failed to give the plane's passengers a required safety briefing, and that Fuddy was wearing a faulty infant life vest.

The cause of the crash is still under investigation.

  • Dec. 1, 2012

A Cessna 172S crashed in waters off Kahului, killing the pilot.

The NTSB said pilot error was to blame for the crash, which happened on a moon-less night.

  • Jan. 10, 2010

A pilot and his passenger were killed when the plane they were in crashed into a ridge above Palolo while they were returning to Honolulu International Airport from Lanai.

The plane was flying in cloudy conditions.

The NTSB said the pilot got disoriented because of the low-visibility conditions and crashed into the mountainside.

  • June 17, 2008

An Island Hoppers sightseeing plane crashed into Mauna Loa, killing the pilot and two passengers on board.

The plane had taken off from Kailua-Kona.

When it did not return as scheduled, a search was conducted and the wreckage was found on Mauna Loa at an elevation of 4,500 feet.

The NTSB said the probable cause was pilot error. The pilot deviated from his planned route, inadvertently entered low-visibility conditions and collided with rising mountainous terrain.

  • Jan. 14, 2008

The pilot of an Alpine Air plane was the only person on board a small Hawker Beechcraft plane when it crashed about 5:08 a.m., nearly seven miles from Lihue Airport.

The pilot's body was never found.

The NTSB said the plane was carrying mail from Honolulu to Lihue when it crashed.

NTSB investigators determined pilot error likely contributed to the crash.

  • July 27, 2006

A pilot and flight instructor were killed in a late-night crash off Kalaupapa, about an hour after taking off from Honolulu.

The plane was operated by Anderson Aviation.

The NTSB said the aircraft lost control, but the exact cause of the crash could not be determined.

  • March 8, 2006

A Hawaii Air Ambulance crashed into a car dealership about a mile west of Kahului Airport, killing the pilot and two flight medical attendants on board.

The crash happened about 7:13 p.m. The crew was on its way to pick up a patient for transport.

The NTSB said pilot error and engine problems were to blame for the twin-engine medical transport plane crash.
