RE: Cuban Plane Hijacked And Crashes South Of Florida

Wed Sep 20, 2000 1:29 am

From CNN:
A Soviet-built single-engine plane with as many
as 18 people on board was hijacked out of Cuba
today and went down in international waters as
it headed toward Florida, officials said.

The plane, which was believed to be equipped
with floats that would enable it to land on water,
was apparently heading toward south Florida,
Jim Reynolds, a spokesman for the Fort
Lauderdale International Airport, told CNN.

The U.S. Federal Aviation Administration
reported the plane went down in international
waters. The U.S. Coast Guard has dispatched
ships and a rescue helicopter to the site where
the plane either crashed or landed on the water,
according to Petty Officer Scott Carr. The site is
believed to be 60 miles southwest of Marquesas
Keys in the Florida Keys.

God bless them all.
