"A Fly Jamaica Airways Boeing 757-200, registration N524AT performing flight OJ-256 from Georgetown (Guyana) to Toronto,ON (Canada) with 120 passengers and 8 crew, was climbing out of Georgetown when the crew stopped the climb at FL200 due to a hydraulic failure and decided to return to Georgetown. The aircraft landed on Georgetown's runway 06 at 02:53L (06:53Z) but veered right off the runway and came to a stop to the right of the runway just short of the runway end. The aircraft was evacuated via slides. There were six minor injuries, the aircraft sustained substantial damage with the right main gear collapsed, the right engine separated from the wing and right wing damage. The injured were taken to a hospital."
