The suspect, believed to be armed with a handgun, is a Jamaican national aged about 20, according to information minister Daryl Vaz. He was also
described as "mentally challenged". The man demanded to be flown to Cuba after he forced his way on to the charter flight on the tarmac at
Sangster International airport. He gained access through a security entrance at around 10.30pm local time (3.30am GMT) using several fake
identification cards. At least one shot was reportedly fired inside the Canada-bound plane but police said no one was wounded. "Flight 918 was
carrying 182 passengers and crew," Canadian charter airline Canjet said in a statement.

If they really wanted to badly enough they could do the same thing here. The problem that taking the plane on the ground leaves you, is that people
KNOW you took the plane, and they can easily stop it from moving while it's on the ramp. It's better to take the plane in flight, when you can't
just stick a fire truck in front of it and stop it.
