This Week in History

This week in 1996, Jamaican authorities opened fire on Jimmy Buffett’s seaplane, the Hemisphere Dancer, mistaking it for a drug trafficker’s plane. U-2 singer Bono was with Buffett, but neither one was hurt. Buffett wrote a song about the incident, entitled “Jamaica Mistaica,” that can be found on the album Banana Wind.
