The HNL RareBirds team expresses our condolences to the Palumbo family, who lost two members in the crash of their Piper PA-32 Cherokee, N8934N (msn 32-40734), along the Mau‘umea Ridge, above Maunalani Heights.

On a personal note, I used to see the Dr. Palumbo's minivan, whose license plate was the Cherokee's registration number. Seeing the N-Number on the FAA registry site, jogged my memory of the car license plate and aircraft registration being the same. In fact, the last time I saw the car was a few days ago while spotting at the Gen Av parking lot, I saw Dr. Palumbo take some supplies through the security gate to an awaiting golf cart.
