Mauna Loa Helicopters' R22B, N5ZK (msn 2158), piloted by Julia Link made an emergency landing today on Fort Street between Beretania and Kukui Streets. She apparently lost power at about 3,000 feet, and was able to land the chopper with her and her passenger escaping major injury. Initial reports cite engine failure. The FAA considered the incident as a controlled hard landing.
GREAT JOB and WELL DONE to the pilot in averting a major incident!
