A large U.S. Navy surveillance plane with nine crew members on board overshot its runway in Hawaii on Monday and crashed into the water, according to military officials who said there were no casualties.
All crew members managed to escape the P-8A Poseidon aircraft, after the crash water landing around 1:57 p.m. The plane was seen sitting upright in Kaneohe Bay off Marine Corps Base Hawaii on the island of Oahu.
“All nine passengers aboard the aircraft at the time of the incident are accounted for, and no injuries are reported,” base spokesman Marine Maj. Jordan Fox said.
The Navy’s P-8A Poseidon aircraft is a surveillance jet with the airframe of a Boeing 737 passenger plane, according to Marine Corps spokesperson 1st Lt. Hailey Harms.
