With the HNL RareBirds blog, and Twitter page going full-blast, the thread series here on A.Net has come to an end. We bid a fond aloha to the HNL RareBirds series, which recently concluded with Volume 16.
The Twitter page will announce any rare flights or aircraft into (or out of) HNL 1st, and follow with photos,and more info on the blog. If you have a twitter account, follow us; and if you have a Blogspot account, become a fan.
I would like to extend a huge mahalo to each and everyone of you who contributed to the HNL RareBirds series in this Civil Aviation forum. Thank you for all the information and comments posted.

Bit off topic, but what does Mahalo mean actually? I can remember that there was once an airline called Mahalo Air which flew inter-island flights. They used ATR42 purchased by Trans World Express which was former Pan Am Express.

Mahalo means thank you
Don't get me wrong, if I had more time, I would continue it here. It's been a great run. I didn't think it would have got to 16 "Volumes". It was not an easy decision to stop the HNL RareBirds thread series, but I felt that with the blog, it was getting redundant to post the info twice.
With the blog, we can get the photos and accompanying info on the internet faster than waiting for the screeners to post it on A.net, plus not have to wait if it gets rejected. Not every HNL RareBird team member has a DSLR. Most of the local contributors are team members of the blog.
With twitter, I can post basic info as soon as I get it, then refer to the blog when a photo gets posted, or I get more info ...

The question I have is how we will be able to easily post info that might be useful for you. For instance I saw an AN-124 at HNL on August 23rd, but I didn't see any info about it on the blog or Twitter.
