NTSB to try and salvage plane in crash off Molokai

HONOLULU (AP) -- The National Transportation Safety Board says it will try to recover the plane that crashed off the Hawaiian island of Molokai after the aircraft was spotted in the water.
The agency previously said it seemed unlikely the single-engine plane could be recovered. But NTSB spokesman Eric Weiss says the plane was spotted Friday from a helicopter. He says the single-engine aircraft was about 400 to 500 yards off the north shore of Molokai.
Hawaii Health Director Loretta Fuddy was the sole fatality among the nine people aboard last week's flight. Weiss says the NTSB is awaiting autopsy results from Maui County.
Weiss says a recovery vessel will leave Honolulu Harbor on Tuesday night and crews will attempt to pull the plane out of the water Thursday.
Weiss says investigators are eager to see the engine.
