A Boeing 737 plane carrying 104 passengers reportedly crashed after taking off in Havana, Cuba, according to a Friday report.

The plane reportedly went straight down and burst into flames near Jose Marti International Airport around 12:30 p.m., according to ABC News, killing everyone on the flight except three.

As well as the 104 passengers on the flight, there was reportedly a crew on the flight to Holguin, Cuba.

Authorities confirmed the aircraft was a 30-year-old Boeing 737-200 from Mexican charter airline Global Air and was being operating on by Cubana.
