Reports also indicate that there is a thick plume of smoke visible around the airport.

Reports also coming from a source in the airport of firefighters trying to get the fire under control and a heavy police presence on the scene at the airport.

An aging fleet: In the last few weeks that Cubana de Avicion, Cuba’s national carrier, had to ground a number of their aging fleet because they said there were safety issues, though the cause of this crash is not known.
