Navy plane overshoots runway and enters Gulf of Hawaii, US military says: NPR

HONOLULU (AP) – A U.S. Navy plane overshot a runway and entered a bay in Hawaii, the military said Monday.

The P8-A aircraft overshot the runway at a Marine base on Kaneohe Bay, said US Marine Corps spokesman Gunnery Sgt. Orlando Perez. He did not have further information, including information on injuries.

The P-8A is often used to hunt submarines and is used for reconnaissance and intelligence gathering. It is manufactured by Boeing and shares many parts with the 737 commercial jet.

The base is about 10 miles (16 kilometers) from Honolulu on Oahu.
