Officials have recovered the flight data recorder from a U.S. Navy airplane that overshot the runway near Honolulu

KANEOHE, Hawaii — The flight data recorder of a large U.S. Navy plane that overshot a runway and ended up in the water near Honolulu this week has been recovered as the military continues to plan for the aircraft’s removal.
The Navy’s Aircraft Mishap Board is investigating on scene at Marine Corps Base Hawaii in Kaneohe Bay, trying to determine the cause of the accident and any contributing factors, the Navy said Friday in a statement.
Sailors from a mobile diving and salvage unit retrieved the data recorder Thursday and conducted a hydrographic survey to assess the P-8A plane’s structural integrity.
The survey also assessed the coral and marine environment around the plane, which will aid them in minimizing impact during its removal, the Navy said.
Kaneohe Bay residents have expressed concerns about possible coral reef damage and other potential harm from fuel or other chemicals in the area, which is about 1.5 miles (2.4 kilometers) from an ancient fishing point.
The Navy said it has put primary and secondary containment booms around the airplane, along with other absorbent materials. Specially trained personnel are monitoring the area 24 hours a day.
There were no injuries to the nine people aboard the plane during Monday’s accident at the base, which is located about 10 miles (16 kilometers) from Honolulu on Oahu.
The P-8A is often used to hunt for submarines and for reconnaissance and intelligence gathering. It is manufactured by Boeing and shares many parts with the 737 commercial jet.
The plane belongs to the Skinny Dragons of Patrol Squadron 4, stationed at Whidbey Island in Washington state. Patrol squadrons were once based at Kaneohe Bay but now deploy to Hawaii on a rotating basis.
Another crew from Washington state, the VP-40 Fighting Marlins, arrived Thursday to assume homeland defense coverage, the Navy said.

Alaska state officials have released the identities of the victims of a landslide that left three people dead and another three missing.
The landslide occurred shortly before 9 p.m. local time Monday near Wrangell, a city in the Alaska Panhandle, along the Zimovia Highway at mile 11, officials said.
Three homes were determined to be directly in the path of the landslide — two houses on the mountainside and one on the waterside of the highway — according to the Alaska Department of Public Safety. One of the mountainside homes is believed to have been empty at the time, officials said.
Five of the victims belong to the same family, according to the Alaska Department of Public Safety.
The victims who were found dead at the scene were identified as Timothy Heller, 44; Beth Heller, 36; and Mara Heller, 16, officials said Friday.
The victims who remain missing at Otto Florschutz, 65; Derek Heller, 12; and Kara Heller, 11, according to the state Department of Safety.
Next of kin has been notified, officials said.
On Thursday, officials resumed their search for Florschutz and the younger Heller children after all the areas accessible without heavy machinery had been searched.
The Alaska Department of Public Safety searched the region with several resources including K9s, drones, boats and helicopters since the landslide struck Monday night, but have not found any signs of the remaining missing persons.
“After three separate active search efforts…search teams have reached all areas accessible without heavy machinery,” the agency said in a statement Thursday afternoon.
The bodies of three people, two adults and a juvenile girl, were recovered by search and rescue teams as of Tuesday evening.
The landslide is estimated to have measured 500 feet across the highway, officials said.
A woman who lived on the mountainside of the highway was rescued Tuesday morning and was listed in good condition, according to officials.
Alaska Gov. Mike Dunleavy has declared a state disaster in the state.
Officials said that emergency crews will begin to start clearing the roadway and look if the missing three people are buried.
“If new evidence or information suggests that any missing people may be in a specific area or slide zone, the Alaska State Troopers may restart the active search focused on that new area,” the Department of Public Safety said in a statement.

After the World Cup final, one controversy has been following the other. Earlier, it was the foot of Mitch Marsh which stirred up the social media as he kept his feet on the World Cup trophy. That gesture from Marsh was slammed by the Indian fans. Now, an Instagram post by an Australian account has surfaced in which the Indian team has been mocked.
An Australian Instagram page that deals in satire, named The Betoota Advodate, posted a derogatory meme on their Instagram handle showing Indian cricketers Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli and others as new-born babies. The mock headline says; “South Australia Man Gives Birth To World Record 11 Sons’. The photo of Travis Head has been morphed on the mother lying on the bed in the delivery room.
The insulting post has not gone down well with the Indians who have filled with comments section with negative reponses. What has made this Intagram post viral is Pat Cummins posting a laugh reaction in the comments. We have the screenshot of it. You can check it below.
Times Now reported that Glenn Maxwell, who smashed 201 not out in the World Cup, and former captain Aaron Finch have liked the posts.
Marsh’s celebration with the trophy photo was also put up by Cummins on his Instagram Stories on the night of the World Cup final. Many of the Indian fans believe that a respected trophy like World Cup should not be treated like that by the Australian team. Others said that Australia are deserving winners of the Cup and can do whatever they want to while being within the rules.
Mohammed Shami, India pacer who finished wiht 24 wickets from 7 World Cup matches, said that he was hurt by seeing that Marsh photo. He added that the trophy is to be lifted on the head, it is not meant to keep your feet on it. Shami felt unhappy after seeing the photo, he told a group of journalists.
India had remained unbeaten in the World Cup uptill the final. Their 10-match winning streak in the 2023 World Cup came to an end after Travis Head smashed a hundred to guide the Aussies to a massive win in the summit clash. That win helped them seal their record-extending sixth World Cup title. Cummins and Co went back home two days later but there was no fanfare at the airport when they arrived.
The Moye Moye trend originated from the Serbian song “Dzanum” by Teya Dora, which gained massive traction on TikTok. The song’s infectious nature and catchy melody allowed it to dominate TikTok charts and spread to other social media platforms. Collaborating with Serbian rapper Solbidan Velkovic Coby for the lyrics and Loka Jovanovic for the melody, the song’s success can be attributed to its simple yet captivating composition
Arizona state troopers say nobody was injured when a runaway bull was found wandering around a Phoenix freeway

PHOENIX — Arizona state troopers say nobody was injured when a runaway bull was found wandering around a Phoenix freeway early Friday.
Video footage from a traffic camera shows the dark, long-horned bull mulling around the highway as troopers try to herd it from the safety of their vehicles.
Sgt. Kevin Watt told AZfamily.com that he came face to face with the animal, which was standing in the high-occupancy vehicle lane.
Watt tried scaring the bull off the road.
“I had my sirens going, everything I could to scare him off the roadway, but he seemed like he wanted to take me on,” Watt said.
Troopers managed to wrangle the animal off the highway and back to the cattle enclosure it escaped from. They discovered the gap in the enclosure that allowed the bull to escape and fixed it.
Authorities say they still don’t know who owns an enclosure so close to the freeway.
