Once embroiled in a dramatic hijacking incident, CU-T1294 landed in Key West Florida, never to return to Cuba. Rising from its past, this Cubana Antonov AN-24RV became an instrument for first responder training, before becoming PlaneTags.

CU-T1294, a Soviet-made AN-24RV operated by Cubana de Aviación, became infamous when it was hijacked on March 31, 2003 during a flight from Cuba's Isla de la Juventud to Havana. A hijacker, armed and demanding passage to the United States, forced the aircraft to land in Key West, Florida. It remained at Key West International Airport for over 20 years, and was used for police and firefighting training before falling into ruins.

The Antonov An-24, a twin-engine turboprop aircraft known for its ruggedness and versatility, served short to medium haul routes for Cubana de Aviación during turbulent political times. Preserving this window to the past in 2024, the history of CU-T1294 will be treasured and shared for decades to come.
