    The airliner, bound for Jamaica, went down 37 minutes after takeoff. It was 1 hour and 15 minutes late taking off. Witnesses report seeing an explosion in one engine, then the plane spiraling out of control. The plane was capable of carrying 300+ passengers. No word on casualties.

        Since govt. officials and the media are reporting at this point that this appears to be an accident, instead of terrorism, this topic is being moved to General Topics.

          I heard it on the radio on my way back to campus-it makes me so sad!
          Is there any word on if there are deaths on the ground?
          It scary how fast so many people can lose their lives!
