                I probably do not agree with you, 40 years is the age already. There is natural wear and tear, three kilograms of upgrades, the engines there are really ancient, what kind of service was also a question. Probably after a quarter of a century, you definitely need to think about what to do with the airplane. I understand that they were crushed by their sanctions, I hope lovers of 'banning' are all St. Peter will remember ..

      A muddy story. Some eyewitnesses, either took off, or on the ground.
      Let’s still wait for clearer information.
      Cuba itself is a closed country, speculation multiplied by rumors is not the best information about what happened.

        Cubana de Aviacion has been ordered to stop flying on certain planes for safety reasons.

        And how old are those planes, and in view of the sanctions, did they have technical service?
        And people are sorry ... What does the common people have to do with it?

      Maybe out of place. Or maybe vice versa:
      Quote: BZTM
      Amen.

      "Amen" in the west and among the Semites. Most priests themselves do not know what it is. Allegedly "true", etc. All Abramic religions came out of Egyptian esotericism. Yes, this is not hidden, Moses - was a priest of Amun, brought some people out of Egypt. Amon is the supreme god of the ancient Egyptian pantheon, the god of black matter (which the freemasons now fast), shorter than Chernobog. They wrote many good mantras, but in one name they put tar in a barrel ... One of the reasons why the mantras of Christians, Muslims and Jews do not work at all. Rather, they act the other way around.

          Today you are not in school, so I’ll tell you that there is practically no difference between the shambles of Shaman Turmankulov and Patriarch Alexy, the shaman throws fly agarics into the fire, the priest fumigates the flock (a flock of sheep in Latin, and the shepherd is a shepherd) with incense, which in the Middle Ages ( I hope not now) was nothing more than opium and the supplies of which were controlled by the Templars. The shaman works with one, several foreheads and on the street (it is possible in a yaranga / wigwam), he makes a bonfire, and in the church there is a small bonfire - the censer must be brought to every erring person (hard work, milk for harm or cahors). Then the shaman beats a tambourine and throats singing a brow into a trance, sets a resonance, uses monotonous chants, he can beat a bell and, unlike a tambourine with a radius of action of several meters, bells cover kilometer distances. Well, with mantras and monotonous lamentations, everything is clear. Charoaction with water / wine (a spoonful for a child, so that they don’t get very drunk) in a bowl, etc. The fire also mesmerizes, in the temple it is a candle, and also the fire does not work, each one has a small fire in his hands. Again, the evaporation of wax (a product of bees, there are remnants of pollen, nectar, bee venom). We act on the senses (vision, hearing, smell, touch (draw crosses on the forehead, and spray water with a mini broom because of mass), taste (wine, bread, etc.). The tambourine and bell resonance and forward, we have euphoria, withdrawal symptoms, addiction, etc. Learn son, anyway, you yourself know who you die. laughing

    Peace be upon the lost.

    I wonder why professional mourners on salaries do not whine that the American Boeing is not ale?

    If a Russian plane crashed, the stench would have been to heaven, about the "rusty Russian planes."
    A rusty aircraft "Western partners" is the norm.

        Not necessarily that “Boeing” from the USA. Cubans buy a lot of equipment from third countries.

      737-200 is a museum. Not even a classic (which started with 300). Plus, the issue of servicing under sanctions, without direct deliveries from Boeing, as well as the question of whether this board complies with the minimum safety standards (that is, the implementation of regularly updated forms - which, again, under the sanctions are not a fact that they performed or even received).

      Although on takeoff - there can be both a failure and a human factor (for example, banal flaps - so many boards were broken).

    There is information about survivors
    This is reported by Granma on his Twitter.

    “Three passengers who survived the crash of a Boeing 737-200 in Havana were hospitalized. They are in critical condition, ”the publication indicates.
