MOLOKAI (HawaiiNewsNow) - A small plane crashed on Molokai last week Thursday, February 27, but no one -- including emergency responders -- learned about it until this week.
Police and fire departments did not respond to the scene because the pilot, who asked to remain anonymous, didn't think it was a big deal. He tells Hawaii News Now that he hit a strong gust of wind, which pushed the twin-engine Partenavia into some trees.
The pilot was then forced to make a hard landing near the remote Panda Airport off Pohakuloa Road.
Fortunately, he walked away unharmed and says the damage is easily fixed.
