  • Boeing Jet Crash Lands At Guyana Airport 6 Injured Minister

A Fly Jamaica flight en route to Toronto crash landed early Friday morning in Guyana.

The plane had 118 passengers, two infants and eight crew members on board.

Just 11 minutes later, the pilot indicated a hydraulic problem and requested permission to return to the airport.

The jet - a 757 model - suffered a hydraulic issue after takeoff, injuring at least six people, according to an AFP report, which cited Guyana's infrastructure minister.

Bowen said two elderly passengers were taken to the hospital as a precaution and the plane was safely evacuated.

Boeing said it was looking into the incident.

Fly Jamaica said the airline is now making arrangements to fly the plane's passengers out of Guyana. Canadian citizens can contact consular officials at +592-227-2081.


"One of the wings came apart and the engine on the right side actually flipped over and we crashed into a big sand pile at the edge of a cliff".

Fly Jamaica Flight 256 headed back to the Guyanan capital Georgetown because of a technical problem, the airline said in a statement on its website, adding that it believes all 118 passengers and 8 crew members are safe.

Amid an investigation into what caused a brand-new 737 Max jet to crash in Indonesia, another jet produced by US aerospace and defense company Boeing crash landed in Guyana.

Fly Jamaica Airways was certified by the Jamaica Civil Aviation Authority (JCAA) in September 2012, and was cleared to operate in the United States by USA authorities in December.

Patterson said that the United States' National Transportation Safety Board has been informed.

"We are providing local assistance and will release further information as soon as it is available", they said.
