All passengers and crew aboard a Boeing 737 touring from Guantanamo Bay, Cuba are protected after the airplane crashed right into a river on the finish of a runway at Naval Air Station Jacksonville, authorities reported late Friday.
No less than 136 folks have been on board the constitution airplane on the time of the 9:40 p.m. crash, sending Navy safety and emergency response groups to the scene. Pictures present the airplane landed in a shallow dredge of water with minimal injury.
The Jacksonville Sheriff’s Workplace tweeted that “each particular person is alive and accounted for.” Naval Air Station Jacksonville mentioned the airplane slid off the runway.

Crews have been additionally working to take away potential jet gas that spilled into the St. Johns River. Authorities did not say what apparently precipitated the airplane to overshoot the runway.
Naval Air Station Jacksonville is a army airport about eight miles south of downtown Jacksonville.
