Passenger plane crash landed into the ocean

Everybody on plane survives crash landing in Pacific lagoon

"They're people that come here to go to work or go to the store or bring fish to the market to sell", Colson said.

Officials said Friday that seven people had been taken to a hospital.

"It's just surreal", said Jaynes, managing editor of The Kaselehlie Press, a newspaper on Pohnpei, another Micronesian island.

James Yaingeluo, one of the first to arrive at the scene, said the plane landed more than 500 meters short of the runway. "I thought "this is not the way it's supposed to happen".

People are evacuated from an Air Niugini plane crashed in the waters in Weno, Chuuk, Micronesia, September 28, 2018 in this picture obtained from social media. Several passengers were injured - one critically - but everyone survived.

"One would think that they might be afraid to approach a plane that's just crashed".

The airline said it had received reports that "the weather was very poor with heavy rain and reduced visibility at the time of incident". Divers are working to recover the plane's black boxes and the National Transportation Safety Board and Federal Aviation Administration will assist with the investigation.

Investigators are trying to figure out how a Boeing 737 missed the runway on a small remote island in Micronesia and ended up in the ocean.

"They immediately starting coming out in boats".

"We don't really know what happened ... people were rescued by boats - 36 passengers and 11 crew were all rescued, only the plane is sinking right now", he added. Micronesia is made up of 4 island states: Pohnpei, Kosrae, Chuuk and Yap.

A special Air Niugini flight departed Port Moresby early this morning as planned, and a support team is now on the ground in Chuuk assessing the condition and immediate needs of the passengers and crew. Its capital is Palikir and it trades with the USA dollar.

The AIC website details an incident involving the aircraft in May this year when a Hercules operated by a freight company clipped the 737's wing while taxiing, causing "significant damage". The country is located north of Australia and east of the Philippines. It has close ties with the US under an agreement known as a compact of free association.

The aircraft was configured for 158 passengers in two classes.

Jaynes, meanwhile, reflecting on his experience, said, "I'm alive, and that's an extremely good thing".
