Remarks: HA168 from HNL to KOA on "Oma'o", seat 22A. Finally, my first ride on a B717! And what better seat to ask for! We've just taken off from HNL's runway 8R and are currently over Sand Island which lies in the entrance of Honolulu Harbor. On the shot you can see the US Coast Guard station on the island, as well as part of downtown Honolulu.
