The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) confirms that a Rhodes Express Flight 810, Boeing 737 freighter with two onboard made an emergency ocean landing off the coast of Honolulu at 0230 local time Friday. The US Coast Guard promptly rescued both crew members, the FAA said. 

The pilots reported engine trouble and were attempting to return to Daniel K. Inouye International Airport, also known as Honolulu International Airport when they were forced to land the aircraft in the water.  

It appears the Coast Guard rescued pilots, but their conditions remain unknown. 

Boeing shares have sunk more than 2% on the news. 

The FAA also said it will be investigating the incident.
