plane crash

The National Transportation Safety Board has released new information regarding a plane’s emergency landing on Maui.

Two weeks ago, a Piper Cherokee plane landed in brush about three miles from Kahului Airport.

The NTSB has released its preliminary report, which attributes the pilot’s emergency landing to lost engine power.

The pilot tried to troubleshoot twice while still in the air, but was unsuccessful.

The Federal Aviation Administration says the plane’s left-wing and fuselage were damaged.

The pilot and his three passengers were not injured.
