Outside on the south side of the gym approximately 50 feet from the gym was a HFD helicopter that landed (photo above) on or about 7:47pm on the baseball field. It stirred up dirt, debris and dust into the gym and created a mess. The OC16 crew also happened to be in attendance doing a live broadcast. No one had any idea as to why the HFD helicopter landed. A source from the Honolulu International Airport (TWR) reported no record of any helicopter landing at Moanalua High School.
I was told that Athletic Director Mr. Joel Kawachi related that the baseball field is in the process of having a sprinkler system installed and grass planted on the outfield. Cinders, a necessity for the playing surface on the infield was blown into areas where it shouldn't be, not to mention a great deal of dirt was kicked up. That evening, the court had to be mopped for safety of the players which delayed the game. In addition, the entire gym will have to have a Hiclean of the gym floors, bleachers, basketball backboards, banners, scoreboards and other flat surfaces. Video "click here."
