Kalihi Air Crash

Kalihi Air Crash On June 8, in the Islands, the then greatest number of fatalities from a single fire occurred in Kalihi in 1944. On that fateful day, two Army medium B-25 bombers collided in midair and plunged into a congested residential area, setting fire to 11 or 12 dwellings. Ten women and children perished in the burning buildings; all four crewmen died in the crash. “All the city’s fire fighting equipment was called out. The fires blocked traffic for nearly four hours.”
