A Boeing 737-200 cargo plane made an emergency landing in the ocean near Honolulu early Friday after pilots reported engine trouble, the Federal Aviation Administration said. Both pilots were rescued from a debris field, the U.S. Coast Guard said. The FAA said Transair Flight 810 made the emergency landing at around 1:30 a.m. local time on Friday. “The pilots had reported engine trouble and were attempting to return to Honolulu when they were forced to land the aircraft in the water,” the FAA said. “The FAA and National Transportation Safety Board will investigate.” The Boeing plane was built in 1975 and powered by two Pratt & Whitney engines, according to the FAA. The aircraft was not a 737 Max, the jet that officials had grounded for 20 months through last November after two fatal crashes. The plane took off from Honolulu’s Daniel K. Inouye International Airport bound for Kahului Airport on Maui, the U.S. Coast Guard said. “Our situation: We lost number 1 engine and we’re coming straight to the airport,” one of the pilots told an air traffic controller, according to audio from the airport’s tower posted on website LiveATC.net. The pilot said the plane had about two hours worth of fuel. “We’re going to need the fire department.” “There’s a chance we’re going to lose the other engine,” the pilot said. “It’s running very hot.” The air traffic controller moments later said: “Low altitude alert. Low altitude alert. Are you able to climb at all?” “No. Negative,” another pilot said. The first pilot asked the air traffic controller to “let the Coast Guard know.”
