Another missing aircraft is making headlines. Maui Fire and Rescue Units are on the scene of a possible incident near Kaupo Gap in East Maui. At noon, today, Kula fire fighters from Engine 13 received a call of a report of what looked like plane debris on the south side of the Kaupo Gap, about 30 miles southwest of Hana.
Engine 13 and Air One assets responded to the area. Air 1 found a section of metal roofing material, possibly a part of a structure, at the 2,500 ft level. Air One continued searching in the area and was unable to locate anything else. Engine 13 at Mile Post 33 was unable to locate anything other than the metal roofing material. According to MFD, the search has been canceled – due to absence of evidence – at this time.
