E Komo Mai "Makali‘i"
"Makali‘i", Hawaiian Airlines first Airbus A330-243, N380HA (msn 1104), made its debut at HNL today on its delivery flight home as HAL9971. The brand new Airbus made a low pass fly-by over Runway 8L, before landing on the same runway several minutes later, and greeted with a water cannon salute.
The aircraft is now parked at the new maintenance area being built next to the ARFF station at the end of Elliott St.
