VIDEO/PHOTOS: Emergency crews responded to Marine Corps Base Hawaii (MCBH) after a US Navy jet overshot the runway and ended up in Kaneohe Bay, military officials said. The Honolulu Fire Department (HFD) sent out the initial alert just after 2 p.m. for a "probable aircraft fire incident." According to a spokesperson at MCBH, a US Navy P-8A Poseidon aircraft was landing at the base when it overshot the landing field and landed in the Bay. Several units with Honolulu Emergency Medical Services (EMS) were called to the scene, but when they arrived they were told by military officials that all nine crew members on board the aircraft had made it safely back to shore. The P-8A is often used to hunt for submarines, and in reconnaissance and intelligence gathering, according to reporting by the Associated Press.
