N732DF Crash On Moloka‘i

N732DF (msn U20604662), a Cessna U206G, owned by Dr. William Vogt, crashed on Moloka‘i today, four miles short of the Ho‘olehua Airport [MKK]. The Cessna departed HNL for MKK with two aboard. It's been reported that the passenger was Dr. Vogt's wife, Lynn.

The HNL RareBirds team expresses our condolences, thoughts, and prayers to the Vogt ‘ohana.

Personal Note
I used to see N732DF parked on the General Aviation ramp abeam the Palekona Street parking lot.  It's plumeria lei livery made a distinctive aircraft on the ramp. I could never get a good shot of this Cessna 206, as the cabin and cockpit windows had a canvas covering, which would block out part of the livery.
