fly Jamaica 757 crash at Guyana



The Fly Jamaica Airways flight OJ 256 crashed at Georgetown Cheddi Jagan with 120 passengers including two infants on board.

None of the injuries are life-threatening.

The Minister of Public Infrastructure David Patterson told reporters during a press conference: "The reports are of back pain and such, no reports of any broken bones."

The flight was departing from Georgetown, Guyana and was meant to land in Toronto, Canada this evening.

The pilot reportedly claimed he started to experience technical issues with the hydraulics and it forced him to turn around to its departure airport, according to Mr Patterson.

While the pilot tried to make the emergency landing he was unable to to get the aircraft to a complete stop before reaching the end of the runway.

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

Among those on board were 35 Guyanese, 82 Canadians, one American citizen, a Trinidadian and one Pakistani.

The crew were made up of six Guyanese and two Jamaicans, according to Mr Patterson.

An investigation into the the crash has been launched.

Looks like tremendous airmanship saved the day if it was indeed a loss of hydraulics.

Intrigued to see only 50% of the slides used. Meets certification requirements at least..

It was only half-full by the looks of things, Cloudtopper.

It happened in the dark when the pilot was not claerly seeing what to expect beyond the end of the runway...
Evacuation happened in the dark, which may explain some injury...

Doh. It's just a statement of fact. It may be relevant, it may not. Don't spend too much time worrying about it

This 757 looks to be easily repairable unless there is some severe damage to the right wing.

The 2am is a fact, but could also contribute via factors such as night, visibility, fatigue etc.

It is very relevant to the investigation.

Looks like there was no fire. That's relevant to staying alive.

Both reverse cowlings appear closed. Not used or stowed for the overrun , or if it was hyd failure(s) then most likely both unavail.

spoliers retracted ?

I also observe the nose gear doors ( FWD and AFT on nose assembly) , a consequence or associated issue with a gear/hyd issue, perhaps alternate extension ..

A passenger said to the CBC that if the plane had continued 10 more feet the plane would have fallen down a 30 to 35 ft deep cliff.

EDIT: and "spikes" at the end of the runway blew out the tires.
