    HAVANA, CUBA —

    A Boeing 737 crashed Friday shortly after takeoff from Jose Marti International Airport in Havana, Cuba.


    The Associated Press reports that 104 passengers were on board plus nine crew members. The domestic flight was headed to Holguin and crashed at approximately 12:30 p.m. local time, according to state TV reports.

    The plane was rented by Cubana Airlines, WPLG reports.

    A military official told the AP that there were three survivors in critical condition, but authorities have not confirmed that figure. A large number of emergency workers responded to the field where the plane crashed, the AP reported.

    Did it have a 1950 Chevy Nose Ornament mounted, might have flown off in flight and took out an engine

    It's been a long road and not all of it was paved.
