Cubana, the Cuban national airline, was granted special permission from the US State Department to fly a charter for Cuba's basketball team competing in a World Basketball tournament held in San Juan that year. Please note that the aircraft is departing from East to West, something that rarely occurs at SJU because of prevailing trade winds. It gave me the opportunity for a great picture.
