Nation and World News

HONOLULU (AP) – Firefighters in Hawaii say they have recovered the bodies of four people at the wreckage of a single-engine plane that crashed in mountains on Oahu.

Rescue crews recovered the bodies of pilot Dean Hutton and his three passengers Saturday. The single-engine plane crashed in a mountainous area northwest of Honolulu.

The passengers were identified as 28-year-old Punahou School alumnus Gerrit Evensen, 27-year-old Heather Riley and Alexis Aaron.

Hutton’s uncle, Scott Potwin, says that the last time Hutton flew the same rental plane it lost all power and communications.

According the Federal Aviation Administration’s registration site, the plane was owned by John P. Mueller. He did not return calls seeking comments.

The National Transportation Safety Board and the FAA are investigating the crash.
