Boeing jet bound for Toronto crash-lands at Guyana airport, 10 injured

GEOGETOWN, GUYANA – Ten people were injured in scenes described as “chaos” as a Boeing airliner carrying 126 people, most of them Canadians, crash-landed in Guyana’s capital Georgetown on Friday (Nov 9), skidding to a halt just before a steep drop.

The Fly Jamaica Airways plane was bound for Toronto when it suffered a hydraulic problem shortly after takeoff and returned to the airport, crashing and careening off the runway, Transportation Minister David Patterson said.
