Plane damaged in Molokai landing
A twin-engine plane sustained substantial damage when it made a hard landing Thursday night at a private airport on Molokai, based on preliminary information, Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Allen Kenitzer said.
The one person aboard the plane was not injured, he said.
The hard landing of the Partenavia P68 Observer plane occurred at about 9:45 p.m. Thursday at Panda Airport, Kenitzer said.
The incident was reported Monday afternoon by the pilot, with police and firefighters dispatched to Pohakuloa and Kaluakoi roads. Officials said the pilot was accounted for and uninjured.
Kenitzer said the incident is pending National Transportation Safety Board review.
Police continue search for woman
Police reported searching by air along the coastline between Honomanu and Keanae on Tuesday, as part of the missing person's investigation into the whereabouts of Carly "Charli" Scott.
The 27-year-old Makawao woman was last seen Feb. 9 at her sister's residence in Haiku. She was five months pregnant. Family members said Scott had left her sister's house to help her ex-boyfriend, whose car had broken down in Keanae.
Scott's vehicle was later found burned in Peahi.
On Tuesday, police reported returning to the area that was previously searched by land. The Maui Fire Department's helicopter was used to search areas that are inaccessible by foot, police said.
"Today's event was to complete this portion of the investigation along the coastline," according to a police news release.
Canadian critically injured by wave
A 54-year-old Canadian man was transported to the hospital in critical condition Tuesday after he was tossed upside down by a wave while bodyboarding at Maluaka Beach in Makena, police said.
Officers responded to the 11:50 a.m. report, finding the visitor from British Columbia complaining of pain to his back and neck, said Capt. Tivoli Faaumu, commander of the Kihei Patrol District. He said the man was conscious and talking and had a bloody lip.
He had been bodyboarding when he was tossed by the wave and went under briefly, Faaumu said. Other beachgoers got the man out of the water, he said.
