Fine, but FlightGlobal ran with it without it even being the correct plane. That's a pretty unfortunate failure.

I read on I think FlightGlobal that the flight was originally supposed to be operated by Blue Panorama but they were replaced by Global Aerolineas Damojh. Not sure if the Blue Panorama 737 is somewhere else or is still in HAV. Either way, they apparently said that it wasn't their flight (after FlightGlobal said that it was).

Yes. And up until WN 1380 month ago, AA also had the last mainline passenger fatality back with AA 587 in 2001.

Isn't the fact that you admit to immediately thinking US carrier prove his point? Several non-US carriers fly 737s into Havana.


With the recent explosion of US air service to HAV and all the talk here about it, it’s natural to first think that a US carrier may have been involved. Earlier in the thread there was speculation that it could’ve been American, Copa, or Cubana. The Copa flight was confirmed to be in the air so it could have only been AA or CU.

That's a lot of intact pieces of plane that has burned out. Hopefully an indication of survivability!


It looks like it could be the tail, though it tends to remain intact even in nonsurvivable accidents.

Mexican newspaper "El Universal" quotes Mercedes Vázquez -Cuban Air Transport Director- who informed that the airplane was leased from mexican company "Aerolíneas Damojh, S.A. de C.V.", also known as Global Air:

So who investigates? Do the Cubans allow the NTSB since it's an American built plane, or do they have the BEA come in?

The tail looks like a -200 tail. No dorsal fin (as far as we can see) and the part missing in the middle of the leading edge would be the place where the HF antenna cable would attach...

Short answer:

The land where the accident happened has to investigate. (In case of international waters, it's the country where the plane is registered.)

The country which has the duty to investigate can contract with NTSB, BEA, AAIB or any other investigation board to carry out the investigation. Or even the ICAO, if they don't trust any specific country.

The manufacturers of the aircraft and of the engines both send technical assistants.

Every nation from which passengers have been killed or seriously injured can send observers.

I'm not asking for them to have solved what happened by now. I'm just asking whose plane went down? It's the capital of Cuba - I'm sure they can figure out what plane it is since they likely saw it happen or knew moments later. BUT - my frustration was that it was being reported as a US plane, a Blue Panorama plane, and a Mexican plane. Looking at the thread we still have people who aren't sure whose plane it is. I'm just surprised.

Seems to be XA-UZK, a 737-500 operated by a Mexican airline called Global Air. If you look at the tail, it's not Blue Panorama's livery.

I don’t think anyone ever described that crash as unsurvivable? That is a picture taken after the plane was evacuated and when the post overrun fire was consuming the aircraft. That wasn’t taken in the immediate aftermath of the overrun in which the plane was largely intact and in one piece.

Unfortunately the crushed and shredded metal spread around (especially noticeable in the first pic posted which has a wider view of the crash site) suggest that we are looking at more than just the aftermath of a burnt out fuselage.

Hi PlaneNTrains, this is Ghim from FlightGlobal. Thank you for being a reader. Could you please kindly point to the report that you referenced? Our only news story on the accident made it clear that the aircraft was not owned by Blue Panorama, and we want to ensure that all information from us is held to the highest standards of editorial accuracy. Thank you for your time!

I don't think anyone is saying that. Communism and the embargos have taken a toll on Cuban infrastructure which would make a crash by an American airline seem much more surprising.

Hello all,
Earlier I posted a note from Flightglobal that stated it was the Blue Panorama Airlines 737-400 that went down. They have corrected their post stating it was a 737 wet leased from a Mexican company involved in this incident. My apologies for posting the wrong info...

CU is or has been operating (not "chartering") A320, DC10, B767, A330...among others. On a dry lease basis, of course. Hardly Russian planes.

There are a lot of people that won't take the time to even read the thread for 2-3 minutes. They just want to post post post.

It is a 737.

It is a leased plane (almost certainly a wet leas) from a Mexican carrier operating a flight for Cubana.

The only thing I am not clear about was it a 737-200 or 737-500?


The Global Air (Mexico) fleet consists of the following aircraft (as of May 2018):
According to ATDB Global Aerolineas Damojh operate three Boeing 737s: a Boeing 737-200 registration XA-UHZ, a Boeing 737-200 XA-UMQ and a Boeing 737-500 XA-UZK (crashed with hull loss 18 May, 2018 in Havana).
