Fly Jamaica flight destined for Toronto suffers accident on landing”

A Fly Jamaica Airways plane headed to Toronto and reportedly carrying dozens of Canadians crash landed in Guyana on Friday after reporting a technical problem shortly after takeoff.

The airline said in a statement this morning that it believes all 128 people on board were safe following the crash.

It says Flight OJ256 "suffered an accident on landing", but offered no other details on the nature of the accident or possible injuries. One of the aircraft's turbines is seen badly damaged after it apparently hit the barrier.

Just 11 minutes later, the pilot indicated a hydraulic problem and requested permission to return to the airport. The airport has also set up a hotline for family members looking for assistance and information.

Images posted on the airport's Facebook page and various sites showed the plane appearing to have gone through a chain link fence, with one of its engines tilted upward and resting on the fencing. Ali, a resident of Toronto, flew to Georgetown two weeks ago for her brother's funeral. Roopnarine said she was told the plane was filled with smoke and passengers were trying to force their way off.

"No reports of any broken bones or such", he said. The Public Infrastructure Minister said the United States' National Transportation Safety Board has been informed.

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.

The plane crashed into a feance and its front wheel became wedged in a pile of sand that was being used for a runway expansion project.

In the meantime, Fly Jamaica is tasked with taking care of its passengers.
