No one hurt in hard landing of Cessna at Honolulu Airport

Rescue crews are at the scene of a "hard landing" of a single-engine Cessna at Honolulu Airport yesterday.

A single-engine Cessna experienced a hard landing yesterday morning at Honolulu Airport when its landing gear collapsed, the state Department of Transportation said.

The incident happened on the runway near Lagoon Drive at 12:12 p.m. The incident did not disrupt airport operations, DOT spokesman Dan Meisenzahl reported. The aircraft is registered to Hawaii Aircraft Leasing and operated by Moore Air Flight School at 90 Nakolo Place.

The Federal Aviation Administration, which is investigating the incident, said the Cessna 172 veered off the left side of runway 4L, crossed a grassy area and came to rest on runway 8L.

The female student pilot, 20, was not injured. The airplane suffered major damage, the FAA said.

No one else was in the aircraft, Meisenzahl said.
