May 4, 2019 at 8:30am ET — Last night, a Miami Air International plane was carrying 136 passengers and seven crew from Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, when it attempted to land at Naval Air Station Jacksonville around 9:40 p.m. The Boeing 737 slid off a runway and came to a stop in the shallow waters of the nearby St. Johns River.
