Hundreds of Hawaiian Airlines passengers got a late start on their Australian vacation.
Their flight to Sydney turned around and flew back to Honolulu Monday afternoon.
A light in the cockpit indicating a problem with the system came on about an hour into the flight.
The plane returned to Honolulu at about 2:30 p.m., but passengers did not leave until about 11 p.m. The airline says Sydney does not allow flights after a certain hour, so passengers were forced to wait.
Hawaiian Airlines apologized to the 246 passengers and treated them to dinner in Waikiki.
About 40 students got sick and 25 of them, along with two adults, were taken to the hospital. Officials are now taking a look at what they ate for lunch.
Big Island police say a 29-year-old Captain Cook man reported being bitten by a shark while body boarding in the area of Ninole Bay.
Several Hawaii schools had high hopes of slashing their electricity bills. But like many homeowners who installed photovoltaic panels, there are long waits before they can start saving.
