well i dont, earlie this morning a crew of 4 cubans from the cuban coast gaurd, docked in the main city harbor, and walk the streets of key west with ak 47s and hand gun. just think of the things they could have done, the only way we knew they were her is because they turned them selfs in at dawn.and about a month or so ago, a plane flew from cuba to key west unintercepted, and about 3 months ago a boat pulled up on the beach in the upper keys and unloaded over 200 imigrans on the beach.

KEY WEST -- Just as the deadline for military action in Iraq approached, Key West heard the sounds of Air Force fighter jets overhead -- but it had nothing to do with the conflict in the Middle East.

A Cuban Douglas DC-3 Aerotaxi plane carrying 29 passengers, reportedly hijacked by six people, landed under military escort at the Key West International Airport Wednesday around 8 p.m.

The six hijackers surrendered to authorities, an FBI spokesperson in Miami confirmed. They will be facing federal hijacking charges, the Associated Press reported. Key West Police Public Information Officer Steve Torrence said the hijackers wielded knives and threatened the pilots. He said no one was hurt in the incident.

"There was no violence," Torrence said.

Air traffic controllers at the Miami International Airport saw the plane on radar around 7:45 p.m. and were unable to make voice contact, FAA spokeswoman Kathleen Bergen said.

Air force fighter jets were scrambled from Homestead Air Force Base and provided military escort to the Key West Airport.

The passengers, including women and three to four children, were released about a half-hour after landing and escorted into the Customs Office at the airport. Early reports indicated at least one of the passengers was not Cuban and that five of the passengers were minors.

One official who asked not to be identified said some of the passengers were asking for political asylum.

The alleged hijackers were detained and were being questioned by U.S. Customs agents. The case is now in the hands of the Federal Bureau of Investigations, Torrence said.

A U.S. Customs Blackhawk helicopter guarded the plane as it sat on the runway near the Cape Air office. It was moved closer to the main airport building around 9:45 p.m.

The Key West Police Department Special Response Team responded along with the U.S. Navy and members of the Monroe County Sheriff's Office. Key West officers who arrived on the scene said some of the passengers looked relieved, while others appeared somewhat upset.

"The hijackers were separated fairly quickly from the passengers and crew. Everyone's OK," Monroe County Sheriff's Deputy and spokesperson Becky Herrin said.

The Aerotaxi plane -- white and blue with a red stripe down the middle, a Cuban flag painted on the cockpit side -- is normally used to escort tourists around the island. This particular aircraft originated from the Isle of Youth off Cuba's southwestern coast, taking off from Nueva Gerona.

Leonardo Pena, a Cuban aviation official, said the incident was being treated as a possible piracy case.

One man who was traveling in an American Airlines plane that arrived directly behind the hijacked aircraft said he did not see anything up close, but that the pilot told them a defection was occurring. He said the airport was closed for a short period of time.

As word quickly spread of the plane's surprise landing, a crowd of onlookers -- many of them members of Key West's Cuban community -- grew by the hour and watched from a distance. Some cheered as the aircraft was brought closer to the gate.

The hijacking follows several recent incidents indicating rough relations between the United States and Cuba. On Tuesday, Cuba said it was prepared to try dozens of dissidents it accuses of being traitors for working with James Cason, head of Washington's diplomatic mission in Havana. Cuban President Fidel Castro recently chastised Cason for allowing dissident journalists to use his residence for a meeting. At least a dozen of those reportedly being detained are independent journalists.
