Hawaiian Air jet enters path of landing cargo plane

Plane forced to abort landing

HONOLULU -A Hawaiian Airlines flight bound for Honolulu mistakenly entered a runway where a cargo plane was landing Wednesday night in Kansai, Japan, aviation officials said.

Japanese aviation officials tell the Aviation Herald that All Nippon Airways 767 was on final descent when the control tower realized the Hawaiian Airlines plane was on the runway. The ANA pilot was told to abort the landing until Hawaiian Airlines flight 450 could taxi off the runway.

The cargo jet safely landed a few minutes later.
