Incident on Hawaii: Naval aircraft overshoots runway and lands in the sea

During rainy weather on Hawaii, a naval aircraft overshot the runway of a military base and plunged into the Kaneohe Bay. According to the news agency “AP,” all nine passengers on board remained uninjured. The Coast Guard was involved in the rescue efforts, which, according to AP, were quickly discontinued as all occupants had been saved.

Mystery surrounds the causes of the accident

According to AP, Gunnery Sgt. Orlando Perez, a Marine Corps spokesman, had no information on what led the P-8A aircraft to leave the runway. A photo taken by witness Diane Dircks showed the aircraft in the water near the coast. This incident is reminiscent of the “Miracle on the Hudson” of 2009, when a passenger aircraft piloted by Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger landed on the New York River and all 155 people on board survived, as reported by AP.
