A former Alaska bush pilot safely avoided beachgoers when he crash-landed his small airplane in the ocean just off a beach on Oahu's North Shore in Hawaii after running out of fuel. Greg Harding, 59, considered landing the plane on either a road or the beach, but then he saw about a dozen people on shore. Harding said the engine "just quit" about 10 minutes after he released a glider, which had an instructor and student onboard, from the plane.
