Narrative:
Transair flight 810, a Boeing 737-200C cargo plane, ditched in the waters off Honolulu, Hawaii. Both pilots were rescued.
The aircraft took off from runway 08R at Honolulu-Daniel K. Inouye International Airport at 01:33 hours local time. After takeoff the flight reported engine issues and the flight crew initiated a turn back to the airport, receiving vectors from ATC.
The flight reported failure of engine no.1 and difficulty in maintaining altitude. Unable to see the airport, the flight crew was issued heading directions from ATC. After ATC got a low altitude alert from the flight, the controller suggested diverting to Kalaeloa Airport, which was closer by. Unable to reach the airport, the aircraft was ditched at 01:45 hours.
A U.S. Coast Guard MH-65 Dolphin helicopter was able to rescue one of the people on board while the Honolulu Fire Department rescue boat recovered the other.
