    Investigators to search ocean off Hawaii for cargo plane - Times of India
    ONOLOULOU: Federal investigators say they will search the ocean floor near Honolulu for a cargo plane that crashed in the Pacific last week in hopes of finding recorders who could keep track of what drove the plane.
    Both pilots survived the crash of a Boeing 737 on Friday as they tried to return to Honolulu Airport. The pilots reported that they lost power in one engine and that they were worried about the other engine, they also failed.
    The National Transportation Safety Board said investigators planned to use the sonar on Monday to investigate the wreckage where the plane sank so they could retrieve devices that record information from the plane and capture cockpit sounds. The so-called black boxes can provide vital clues as to the cause of a crash.
    The security panel said knowing the location, condition and depth of the wreckage would help him determine how to recover the files and whether to save the plane.
    The 46-year-old was used by Rhoades Aviation as a Transair Flight 810. It was scheduled to fly from Honolulu to Kahului, Hawaii, but went into the ocean several miles offshore, according to authorities. Both pilots, the only passengers, were seriously injured and clung to packages and the tail of the plane when they were rescued by the US Coast Guard, authorities said.
    The Security Council said it met Saturday with others involved in the investigation, including representatives of the Federal Aviation Administration, Rhoades Aviation, Boeing, Pratt and Whitney engine and air traffic controllers.
