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?

  1. No big deal. Happens quite a bit. I’d much rather pilots use extra caution and make smart, safe decisions than, umm, try to wing it. Can certainly be scary, though. One time, the lady sitting next to me nearly had a complete meltdown. She was whimpering and hanging on so tight I thought she was going to rip the arm rests right off.
