HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - A large U.S. Navy aircraft ended up in shallow waters of Kaneohe Bay on Monday afternoon after overshooting the runway at Marine Corps Base Hawaii.
The incident happened about 2 p.m. and the large plane could be partially submerged in shallow waters. Sources said the aircraft had nine people on board and all of them made it to shore.
Injuries were reported to be minor, but that could not be independently confirmed.

There goes someone’s career...
“The plane is a Boeing P8 Poseidon”
There goes $500 million bucks.
Well, at least I hope the pilot’s woke!
New double top secret transmedium craft, shhhh.
They should have kept the P-3s.
This is what happens when ATC misgenders a pilot. Time for more gender pronoun training!! It is, after all, the Navy.
I read elsewhere that nine crew members swam to shore safely. I assume that was all that was on board.
Where did you see or read about the pilot? I did see it in the written report or the video. They did report the runway is short for a P8 and that the weather was not good.
Well, Poseidon *was* the god of the sea in Greek pagan worship. So back to the sea it went.
If that was the case the pilot should have refused landing there and diverted. BTW, I am a pilot and former Navy…
“I read elsewhere that nine crew members swam to shore safely. I assume that was all that was on board.”
THIS ARTICLE : “Sources said the aircraft had nine people on board and all of them made it to shore.”
“This is what happens when ATC misgenders a pilot.”
Not surprising. Same thing happens when they re-arrange standards to get women into the cockpit along with more blacks.
“THIS ARTICLE : “Sources said the aircraft had nine people on board and all of them made it to shore.”
Well, I guess it was this article I read it in then. I’ve read several articles and tweets about the incident and just forgot which one I actually posted. LOL!
The runway is 7772 feet at 23 feet above sea level. Chicago Midway is 6522 at 620 feet elevation.
Southwest flies 737s out of Midway. A P-8 should be fine.
In a Barber's Point P-3 sister squadron, they put a bird down gear up on Maui.
Toasted the aircraft commander, his 2-P, the FE (since all three of them missed the misplaced gear lever) and IIRC the squadron CO. Took months to get the bird home.
I looks like there is a large crack behind the cockpit although it could be something else. Anyone know?
Just flew back to DC on Southwest 737-800 via Midway and my Wife must have thought I was on Meth because as soon as we touched down the pilot hit the thrust reversers and was grabbing brakes, I was laughing and whoooooinng thru it all.
Loved the trip out to Vegas too as it was thrust reversers and brake grabbing all the way out.
I loved being at Pax River when I got to fly onboard a P-3. 3 turning and 1 spinning, we even did 2 once.
Whoever put this P-8 in the drink should be grounded as the new P=8s pretty much have the same engines that use to be on the 757 in a smaller version.
