What's interesting is the Mode S code, hex 4419D8, which is normally assigned to Austria. Another source reported this to be OO-DNX, unknown type of ...

Re: American Airlines Flight Crashes at Jamaica Airport

It is a disgrace for AA that they employ people to make such a statements. First they say : "no serious enjuries" . But the airport authority speaks about broken bones, cuts, and back problems with 4 people in a serious condition. If my back would be broken, I would consider this as serious. So AA ...

Aim is to extend the runway to a full 1.500m, includi...
