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

The Fly Jamaica plane, bound for Toronto, suffered a hydraulic problem ten minutes after taking off from Georgetown airport at 2.10am and had to turn back.

Six of the 128 people aboard the plane, including crewmembers, were injured in the crash, the minister of public infrastructure, David Patterson, said as cited by local media.

There were eight crew members aboard. The activated emergency chute can be seen at right along with the shattered right wing.

Those injured are in non-life-threatening condition and being treated in hospital.

Boeing delivered the final 757 in 2005 after more than two decades of production that saw the longest-ever single-aisle airliner become a mainstay of trans-Atlantic routes and cross-continental flights in the U.S.

About 20 minutes into the flight, the pilot indicated the plane was experiencing problems with its hydraulic system, Guyana officials said at a Friday morning news conference.

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

A spokesman for Fly Jamaica said: 'We can confirm that Fly Jamaica flight OJ256 bound for Toronto has returned to Georgetown with a technical problem and has suffered an accident on landing.

"We are providing local assistance and will release further information as soon as it is available", they said.

On June 30, 2011, a Caribbean Airlines plane overshot the runway at Timehri and crash-landed.
