Aircraft Split in Half in Guyana

Just when passengers thought the plane had safely landed, the weirdest thing happened. Caribbean Airlines flight 523 had just touched down in Guyana coming from New York when the plane slid off to the end of the runway and passed through a chain-link fence. The aircraft, a Boeing 737-800, broke in half and almost fell in a deep ravine.

All 163 people on board survived. Officials from Trinidad and Tobago where the airline is based will be in Guyana today, Sunday, to investigate the crash.

Guyana's Cheddi Jagan International Airport was temporarily closed due to the crash but reopened later on Saturday.
