Sorry about typos on my blog for next few days. Blogging from my phone and I can’t edit my posts from it.



Hawaiian Airlines Near Miss Today

I was on Hawaiian Airlines Flight 383 today.

As we were about 20-30 feet from touching down… the plane all of a sudden aborted its landing and immediately started climbing again.

Everyone on the plane was tripping out. We had no idea what was going on… until the pilot came on the intercom telling us there was a small plane on the runway!

WTF!!! That scared the crap out of me!

We circled around the airport once and then had a routine landing.

Does anyone know of a site where I can. find out exactly what happened on this flight?

As we were unboarding, I saw the pilots filling out something I’ve never seen before, this had to have been reported to FAA.

Let me know if you know of some site where reported incidences like this happen… and ho common is this?

So I Met an Admiral!

Today, I had the chance to meet the Commander of the Pacific Forces Admiral Willard.

I will be posting more about this when I return to the Big Island.

For those of you that I told to watch my twitter feed at 3:00 to see what the surprise was… I apologize.

For some reason… no one in the room was able to catch their data plans.

I wouldn’t doubt that was because of all the logistics and translators that were working this network of little Kiosks next to us.

I asked to take a picture of that room, but officials would not allow me.

More to come when I get home and can upload the media I have from the event.

I was told that I was the only blogger in attendance and that they had NEVER invited one before… so for this… I’d like to say thanks to those that were involved in bringing me over for this.
