Air cargo company that ditched plane off Hawaii is grounded

In this July 8, 2021 image from video provided by Sea Engineering, Inc. via the National Transportation Safety Board, the jet cabin from Transair Flight 810 rests on the Pacific Ocean floor off the coast of Honolulu, Hawaii. The Federal Aviation Administration said Friday, July 16, that it will bar Rhoades Aviation of Honolulu from flying or doing maintenance inspections until it meets FAA regulations. The decision to ground the carrier, which operates as Transair, is separate from the investigation into the July 2 ditching of a Boeing 737, the FAA said. (Sea Engineering, Inc./NTSB via AP)
