No injuries after Cessna goes down off H-2 freeway


A student pilot and his instructor were not injured after an emergency landing Tuesday evening of a Cessna 172P in a pineapple field near Costco Wai-pio.

The 54-year-old student pilot, Bruce Hamilton, turned over the controls of the plane to his instructor, Michael Richards of Moore Air, after the plane experienced engine trouble.

Hamilton said they had finished training and were heading back to Hono-lulu when the engine started sputtering at an altitude of 2,000 feet.

The plane landed when it was still light, he said.
