A light aircraft has crashed in Hawaii, killing at least nine people on board, officials say.

The twin-engine aircraft went down close to Dillingham Airfield near Mokuleia in Honolulu
County. There were no survivors from the King Air flight, the Hawaii Department of Transportation tweeted.

Photos showed smoke billowing from miles away. It is not yet clear if the plane was taking off or landing. "Right now, the initial report is that there were nine souls on board," an official told Hawaii News Now. "There's no survivors."

The Honolulu Fire Department said that they received reports of a downed plane at around 6:30 pm on Friday. According to its website, Dillingham Airfield is a joint-use site with the US army having first priority for air-land operations and helicopter night-vision training.
