(Dan Tri) – The US Navy’s P-8A Poseidon reconnaissance aircraft slid off the runway while landing in Hawaii.
Military officials said the US Navy’s P-8A Poseidon reconnaissance aircraft with 9 crew members crashed into the waters off the Hawaiian island of Oahu on November 20.
The incident occurred after the plane slid off the runway at a US Marine Corps base in this area.
According to US Marine Corps spokeswoman Hailey Harms, no casualties were recorded on the P-8A Poseidon aircraft.
Mr. Harms said the condition of the nine people on the plane was being assessed.
Photos showed the plane lying on the water in Kaneohe Bay off Marine Corps Base Hawaii on the main island of Oahu, north of Honolulu.
Bad weather with strong winds, fog and poor visibility can cause the plane to crash.
The P-8A Poseidon is considered one of the most effective reconnaissance and submarine search and destroyer aircraft in the world thanks to its effective radar system, sensors and modern, advanced weapons array.
The P-8A can fly at a maximum altitude of nearly 12,500m and perform effective reconnaissance activities even while flying high above. The P-8A’s sensor system includes the APY-10 radar that can identify and detect surface ships and recognize deep-sea diving submarines. The P-8A is known as the “underground killer”.
