United flight lands safely in Kona after shutting off one engine

By Associated Press

POSTED:



A United Airlines flight from Los Angeles to Kona International Airport on the Big Island landed without incident even though mechanical problems forced a pilot to shut off one of the plane's engines shortly before arriving.

State Department of Transportation Spokesman Dan Meisenzahl said today that the pilot of United Flight 57 contacted the airport about 50 minutes prior to arrival to say an oil pressure warning light had come on and he would have to shut down one of the jet's two engines. 

Airport fire units stood by along with county paramedics and police as a precaution as the plane landed at 12:40 p.m. 

The Boeing 757-200 was carrying 84 crew and passengers.
