12 Noon Until the North Korean Missiles Strike

I just stopped by the Punatic Cyber Cafe and they have quite a gathering of people for lunch and this “Ground Zero” party they are having to honor the incoming North Korea Missiles.

The owner of Punatic Cyber Cafe, Mike Hale,  has promised me that  if a missile hits Puna… free coffee will be on the house.  Just teasing, Mike didn’t say that.

But if a missile were to hit Puna… sitting in a coffee house is probably the way to go out.

You can view them all the way back to 1999.

Looking back 10 years ago in today’s history of the day… I found the following:

The pilot of a twin-engine private plane was killed Sunday (July 4, 1999) when the aircraft caught fire as it was taking off on a runway at Hilo International Airport.

Responding to a 9:54 a.m. call, police learned that the plane had stopped in Hilo for refueling on a flight from Honolulu to California.

The aircraft, a Beechcraft Baron, was taking off heading east on Runway 8 when it caught fire about 2,000 feet from the end of the runway.

Witnesses said the tail broke off and the rear of the aircraft disintegrated.

The name of the male pilot, the lone occupant of the plane, was being withheld pending notification of next of kin.

The Federal Aviation Administration was notified of the accident and is continuing an investigation into the crash.
