Pacific Wings Caravan Clips Pole At LUP

A Pacific Wings C208B Caravan clipped a light pole at LUP while taxiing, last week (date unknown). N303PW (msn 208B0985), was the Caravan involved in the accident. According to sources, none of the passengers nor the pilot were injured. The Caravan, however, sustained damage to the starboard wing. It's not known whether the aircraft can be repaired there. There's speculation that the Caravan will need to be shipped back to HNL by boat.

N303PW was originally painted in the wave-themed Pacific Wings livery, but the C208B was later assigned to Georgia Skies (a Pacific Wings EAS subsidiary). N303PW was recently brought back to Hawai‘i, without the Georgia Skies markings.
