I was PIC and flying near a restr area 3110 (hawaii sectional). I was offshore out of restr airspace. I noticed that a large area of burned foliage in the restr area was new. I flew towards the shoreline to investigate further. I did not cross the shoreline, but afterwards, noted that on the chart (sectional) the border of the restr area extends outward from the coastline, maybe 1/2 mi as depicted. This would mean I was inside the border at time. There were no incidents with any other aircraft. This is a routine live fire range for the military and I knew it was (hot) active from the NOTAM I had received prior to the flight. I may have inadvertently entered the restr airspace. There did not appear to be any detonation or firing this day. I will pay closer attention to borders and give more clearance in the future. My curiosity led to my oversight.
Original NASA ASRS Text
Title: GRUMMAN TR-2 PLT ENTERED R-3110.
Narrative: I WAS PIC AND FLYING NEAR A RESTR AREA 3110 (HAWAII SECTIONAL). I WAS OFFSHORE OUT OF RESTR AIRSPACE. I NOTICED THAT A LARGE AREA OF BURNED FOLIAGE IN THE RESTR AREA WAS NEW. I FLEW TOWARDS THE SHORELINE TO INVESTIGATE FURTHER. I DID NOT CROSS THE SHORELINE, BUT AFTERWARDS, NOTED THAT ON THE CHART (SECTIONAL) THE BORDER OF THE RESTR AREA EXTENDS OUTWARD FROM THE COASTLINE, MAYBE 1/2 MI AS DEPICTED. THIS WOULD MEAN I WAS INSIDE THE BORDER AT TIME. THERE WERE NO INCIDENTS WITH ANY OTHER ACFT. THIS IS A ROUTINE LIVE FIRE RANGE FOR THE MIL AND I KNEW IT WAS (HOT) ACTIVE FROM THE NOTAM I HAD RECEIVED PRIOR TO THE FLT. I MAY HAVE INADVERTENTLY ENTERED THE RESTR AIRSPACE. THERE DID NOT APPEAR TO BE ANY DETONATION OR FIRING THIS DAY. I WILL PAY CLOSER ATTN TO BORDERS AND GIVE MORE CLRNC IN THE FUTURE. MY CURIOSITY LED TO MY OVERSIGHT.
