    Now confirmed as a B.737 on wet lease to Cubana and flying from Havana to Holquin, believed to be Flt. 972. The plane crashed in a fireball and fire fighters are struggling to contain the fire.

      Apparently the fire can be seen from the terminal. The leased plane is supposed to be owned by Blue Panorama Airlines who have a code share arrangement with Cubana. The company has long been in trouble financially. the plane is reported as having 104 or 107 persons on board.

        There are two sides to every story. The truth is usually somewhere between the two.

          Disregard all references to Blue Panorama in this instance.
