Boeing 757 flying to Canada crash lands at Guyana airport leaving six people injured
A Boeing 757 jet has crash-landed at Guyana airport moments after taking off, leaving six people injured.
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.
But while coming into land it overshot the runway, went through a fence and ended up in a large pile of sand, tearing one of its wings and an engine off in the process.

My favourite Boeing plane is the Boeing A380 followed by the classic Boeing L1011 TriStar.

A380 is Airbus. Boeing starts with 7 like 717-727-737-747-757-767-787-777

Probably overshot because it was heavy with fuel and unable to stop. That would be the same for any aircraft.

It must have had a lot of fuel for the flight all the way to Canada but pilot wisely must have dumped it all in that narrow 10 minutes.

B757 doesn't have a fuel jettison system.
