The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) said that the US authorities located the debris of Boeing 737-200 cargo plane that crashed last week near Hawaii.
The Transair plane was ditched in the waters of Mamala Bay near Honolulu, shortly after taking off from
Daniel K. Inouye International Airport, Hawaii according to NTSB.
The cargo flight was bound for the Kahului Island.
According to Sputnik, both members of the two-person flight crew sustained injuries, but were rescued by the coast guard.
The NTSB kicked off with their investigations on Friday and recovered a small amount of debris.
In a news release, the NTSB revealed that, the debris was taken to the Coast Guard Air Station Barbers Point where it was examined by the NTSB investigators.
The findings from the investigation are to aid in further investigations by experts from the NTSB, the Federal Aviation Administration, Boeing, engine manufacturer Pratt and Whitney, among others.
The exact location of the sank plane has yet to be determined.
