Another Sea Rescue

Video: Watch: Plane deploys parachute for emergency landing in Hawaii ocean - Telegraph

Interesting plane the Cirrus - it has a safety parachute which can be deployed when the aircraft gets into trouble.

Holy crap that is a long flight over water for a small plane. He was flying from California to Maui. He had enough fuel onboard, but couldn't get the auxiliary tanks to provide the fuel properly. Text book ditch though

The second crash on Sunday was kinda stupid. Uh did you put gas in it?
