HAL24 Returns To OGG In Emergency

A Hawaiian Airlines 767-300ER flying as HAL24 [OGG-OAK], made an emergency return to OGG as a burning smell was noticed by crew and passengers. N583HA "‘A" (c/n 25531, l/n 453) landed without incident, and taxied off of Runway 2/20. All aboard evacuated via the inflatable slides on Taxiway A, as OGG ARFF crews stood by.

Passengers are being put aboard a replacement flight, HAL1024, that will leave OGG tonight. N393HA "Lehuakona" (msn 1422) will make the flight to OAK, after being ferried from HNL as HAL8024.
