Where is he keeping extra fuel? Isn't the max range of the 310 around 1200nm? Yikes. Glad he's OK.

They install large tanks inside the cabin for ferrying.

He was within 10 miles of Hilo, but since ditching should always be done with power on, guess he couldn't risk it. Worked out well for him.

I Appreciate the link, I am the Owner of International Ferry Flights, My company has not lost any aircraft. The company that lost this aircraft was American King Air http://americankingair.com just for clarification.

Welcome aboard RC Groups!

Sorry about any confusion regarding your company and the accident aircraft. Don't recall exactly, but I suspect I posted the link to your site as it was the first detailed description of ferry tanks that appeared on the search engine at the time.
