HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

A Hawaiian Airlines flight was forced to make an emergency landing Wednesday afternoon due to a vibrating engine, the airline said.

HA 177 departed Kona around 4 p.m., but the captain had to shut down one of the engines.

The plane safely touched down at the Daniel K. Inouye International Airport in Honolulu at around 5 p.m.

It landed 17 minutes late, according to a flight tracking website

Colleen Porter, a passenger on the plane, told Hawaii News Now there was a huge crash and the plane went up and came back down. She said everyone was crying and praying until they reached Honolulu. 

No one was injured in the process.
