HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - A small plane made an emergency landing in Kapiolani Park on Tuesday afternoon, in a spectacle that shocked bystanders and triggered a large response.

There were two people in the plane, and Honolulu EMS confirmed no one was injured.

The plane came to rest near the park’s bandstand fully intact.

Eyewitnesses said the landing was relatively smooth — but no less shocking.

“I thought, ‘No way, that’s an airplane in the middle of a park,’” said witness Mario Volk.

“It’s still surreal. I mean, I was happy to see that the pilot and the passenger both got out and were just walking around talking to the emergency officials. There was no real damage.”

Volk added that everyone was lucky that the park was relatively empty.

The plane made the landing about 3 p.m. after apparently experiencing engine trouble.
