It is not known exactly what caused the problem with the Fly Jamaica plane, which was a 757-200 model.
A Fly Jamaica Airways plane headed to Toronto and reportedly carrying dozens of Canadians has crash landed in Guyana after reporting a technical problem shortly after takeoff.
Six of the 128 people aboard the plane, including crewmembers, were injured in the crash, the minister of public infrastructure, David Patterson, said as cited by local media. One of the aircraft's turbines is seen badly damaged after it apparently hit the barrier.
Those injured are in non-life-threatening condition and being treated in hospital.
"Where the aircraft veered off is about the exact same place the Caribbean Airlines (plane did)... so fortunately for us on this occasion, the extension (of the runway) was there so they were able to utilise the extension", Patterson said, adding that investigations into the matter had already started.
Just 11 minutes later, the pilot indicated a hydraulic problem and requested permission to return to the airport.
Among those on board were 35 Guyanese, 82 Canadians, one American citizen, a Trinidadian and one Pakistani.

The Cheddi Jagan International Airport has since been reopened to regular traffic.
CBC said that a representative from the U.S. National Transportation Safety Board is expected to assist in the probe.
That's when it suffered "an accident on landing", a statement from Fly Jamaica reads.
The plane touched down at 2.53am, when it overshot the runway.
