FlightAware and FR24 have American 1334 off the ground. It sounds like it was Cubana 972 to HOG.

Everyone is reporting a 737. Its likely leased/wet leas if its to Cubana. Other possibility is a charter to Florida. I have seen a 737 in "Havana Air" colors when its actually a flight operated by someone like Xtra.

I am leaning towards a leased 737 for Cubana given that is what the state run media is reporting.

This site is full of airline nerds/ AV Geeks. I think we can all say that our hearts go out to those involved! A plane crash is always a terrible thing and a reminder of how lucky we are to disembark safely...a reminder to myself as I hop on and off airplanes like taxi's that not all flights end well. Rare, but when it happens it can feel like otherwise.

Indeed. Remember this when you're bitching that there's no ice, that there's no gluten free option or you 'took off late' despite no airline actually publishing take off times. Be lucky you get to your destination.

Can we just let it go? Probably a poor choice of expressing himself when thinking it might have been a US carrier. Doesn't mean he values anyone else less, but rather had a natural reaction to thinking one of his country's airliners had just gone down. It's already becoming a sideshow in this thread which in itself seems to denigrate the tragedy that's unfolding. IMHO

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

Updates now saying it was a Global Aerolineas Damojh operated 737. The picture above from WashingtonFlyer would seem to support that, the stabilizers certainly appear similar. Sad day.

Judging by these pics of the crash site, it was NOT the Blue Panorama 734, but the Global Air 732.

Check out the vertical stabilizer livery:

I wonder when people will understand:
Embraer 190 or simply E190, not ERJ-190. E-Jets are NOT ERJs!
Boeing 747-8, not Boeing 747-800. Same goes for 787.
Airbus A320, not Airbus 320.
Airbii does not exist.

Apparently not the I-BPAC. FR24 tweeted "We've deleted a tweet referencing Blue Panorama with regards to the crash in Havana, as the airline states it was not their aircraft."

Looks like it might be a mexican-registered aircraft instead.

Not necessarily doubting the accuracy, but that paint doesn't look like any pictures available of a Blue Panorama 737 (especially not what is apparently the accident aircraft) and it doesn't seem to match CU's livery either.
