This Day in Buffett History

January 16th, 2007


11 years ago today, on January 16h, 1996, Jamaican authorities opened fire on Jimmy Buffett’s seaplane, mistaking it for a drug trafficker’s plane. U2 singer Bono was with Buffett, but neither one was hurt.

Buffett penned a song from the incident… Jamaica Mistaica.

See photos of Buffett’s airplanes on the Buffett Aviation page.
