A U.S. Navy P-8A Poseidon maritime patrol jet overshot the runway at Marine Corps Base Hawaii (MCBH) on Monday afternoon.
The occurrence took place around 2 p.m., with the aircraft carrying nine individuals, all of whom successfully made it to shore, as per local media reports.
As the P-8A Poseidon attempted to land, it overshot the runway, ultimately skidding into the shallow waters of Kaneohe Bay. The incident unfolded at approximately 1:57 p.m., leading to the sight of the large U.S. Navy aircraft partially submerged in the bay.
The crew was engaged in "routine training" at the time of the mishap. The Boeing P-8A Poseidon, known for its role in military surveillance and patrol, found itself in the shallow waters following the runway overshoot.
The Kaneohe runway's comparatively shorter length, coupled with adverse weather conditions and Kona winds, is speculated to have contributed to the incident.
An ongoing investigation is underway to determine the precise causes and circumstances surrounding the runway overshoot and subsequent water landing.
