HONOLULU (AP) – Officials remain at the scene of Friday’s deadly skydiving plane crash in Hawaii.
Federal investigators will review repair and inspection records on the skydiving plane that became inverted before crashing shortly after takeoff on Oahu’s North Shore, killing all 11 people on board in the deadliest civil aviation accident since 2011.
The same plane sustained substantial damage to its tail section in a 2016 accident while carrying skydivers over Northern California.
Repairs were then made to get the plane back into service, National Transportation Safety Board officials said at a news conference Sunday.
Officials say the plane was equipped to carry 13 people.
