Hawaiian Airlines Oil Light Cuts Flight Short

If you’re one of those drivers who ignores that oil light on your car’s dashboard when it goes off, then be glad you’re not a pilot. Pilots have the same light, and it can’t be ignored.

It’s a good thing you’re not a pilot, then.

258 passengers aboard a 10:30 a.m. Hawaiian Airlines A330 to Los Angeles were relieved to be back on the ground after the plane they were on developed engine problems and had to return to Honolulu.

Fifteen minutes into the flight, the oil light went on. Pilots shut down the affected engine.

Passengers caught the alternative flight at 11:15 a.m.
