Possible engine trouble prompts return of Hawaiian Air flight to L.A.

By Star-Advertiser staff

LAST UPDATED: 07:30 a.m. HST, Apr 08, 2013

An 8 a.m. Hawaiian Airlines flight to Los Angeles returned to Honolulu Airport Sunday morning because of a possible engine problem.

A Hawaiian Airlines spokesman said an engine oil filter indicator light flashed on in the Boeing 767 about 15 minutes into the flight, forcing the pilot to turn the plane around as part of normal procedure.

The 258 passengers on Flight 10 boarded another plane and departed for Los Angeles around 11:15 a.m.

No other flights were disrupted. Plane technicians are inspecting the plane, but haven't found anything wrong yet.

ALL-LIE - isn't it absolutely scary? Next time you fly ...er ah correction, next time you take a plane trip you should THINK about all the things that could go wrong on the aircraft. That would keep you occupied for the entire trip and prevent you from annoying the sh*t out of the poor people sitting around you. But then again, your natural doltishness might just come through and you might not be able to help yourself... right? Hon.

Lucky u live in false land. There has been no comments on this story is Great News for Hawaiian Air, the Lady Luck, who is seen weekly on the opening credits of the new version of Hawaii Five-O. If that is not an endorsement, what is? Anyways, I like to watch a few of the Airline Investigation shows such as Air Disaster on 1339 of Oceanic. Those shows, show the minute detail that any crew takes fro granted which dooms an air flight and ultimately an airline. The ego of the pilot not wanting to acknowledge the possible warning of disaster. Now this warning light could have been as mundane as a 20 cent light bulb not working, as I seen one of the Air Disaster episodes, however any airlines' Maintenance section needs to be top notch. I suppose Boeing will be involved in this incident.

Aircraft are incredibly complex. Depending on what the light was designed to indicate. Clogged oil filter is my guess. Question is clogged with what? No mention of low oil pressure or other issue. Jets are designed with many redundancies to ensure safe operation. Plane can safely fly on one engine. Scary? Not at all. I worked on UH-1H and UH-60 Helicopters. All had occasional maintenance issues. Nature of the aircraft. Just as your car has a "Check Engine Light" you have to go in and find out what the problem is. Enjoy your air travel, safest way to travel ever.

The manufacturers try to make the instrument panel as foolproof as possible but in doing so there are no longer the gages to show pressure, all you have are the idiot lights and when one comes on your only safe option is to shutdown the engine, dump fuel and land.

I was on the plane. No big deal at all. There was no sense of urgency on the plane until we saw all the emergency vehicles on the tarmac when we landed. The passengers weren't told that the engine would be shut down. I didn't notice the engine was off until we landed. It felt like the plane was moving a little more side to side during landing.
