Earlier today, the skies over the island of Maui were quiet and peaceful. @Butter575 had opened G/T ATC services for some friends and i decided to fly in to Maui to get in on this.
Things went downhill faster than Ryanair’s descent rate on touchdown.

1| Preparing for departure from Kona
2| Departing Kona
3| Well Into my approach into Kahului…. Things are still peaceful
4| And the peace is ruined. A get buzzed by an F-16. Little did me and the others know a simple F-16 buzzing wouldn’t even scratch the surface of what’s to come…
5| Touchdown! This here is the last peaceful image…
6| I get told by ATC to give way to an aircraft, so i look around at the terminal and runway to see who it is and along comes this 757
7| At the gate now, as a 737 takes off while that 777 does… something. I dont know what but they were doing it
8| Airberlin takes off towards the terminal (both takeoff as in “I took off running” and as in “the airplane took off from the runway)
9| Airberlin didn’t get very far, they stalled and did a cartwheel on the west side of the airport
10| this 757 got impatient, lined up on the runway in the way of a southwest 737 and began a takeoff roll, only for them to veer off the runway and tail strike for 20 seconds before finally getting airborne
