Boeing 737 cargo jet forced to land the aircraft in the water after engine trouble

A Boeing 737-200 cargo jet with two people aboard dumped off the coast of Honolulu, Hawaii, early Friday after the pilots announced motor difficulty, as per the Federal Aviation Administration.

The pilots of Transair Flight 810 were saved after they dumped the plane, the FAA told The media.

The plane took off at 1:33 a.m. nearby time and the last signal was gotten 12 minutes after the fact, as per flight-attaching site Flightradar24.

“The pilots experienced announced motor difficulty and were endeavoring to get back to Honolulu when they had to set down the aircraft in the water,” the FAA said in an email.

“As indicated by primer data, the U.S. Coast Guard safeguarded both team individuals. The FAA and National Transportation Safety Board will explore,” the agency added.

The Coast Guard transported one pilot to the Queen’s Medical Center, while a boat carried the other pilot to shore. The pilot was then transported to the clinic in genuine condition with various slashes, News announced, refering to the state Department of Transportation.

The plane — which FAA records show was worked in 1975 — was not a 737 Max, Boeing’s most current model, which was grounded after two accidents in 2018 and 2019.

The flight was worked for Transair by Rhoades Aviation, as indicated by Flightradar24. Transair’s site says the Hawaii company has been in operation since 1982.

“The joined Transair and Transair Express all-cargo fleet of five Boeing 737 and five Bombardier SD3-60-300 aircraft fly every day to all major Hawaiian island destinations of Kauai, Maui, Kona and Hilo with stretched out service to Lanai and Molokai,” the site says.
