Air Jamaica 757 @ GEO

Not much detail on BBC, but seems to have returned to GEO with hydraulic problems after departure, then overrun on landing (due to said hydraulic problems?)

That's not Air Jamaica. Air Jamaica hasn't existed in a while.

A Fly Jamaica Airways Boeing 757-200, registration N524AT performing flight OJ-256 from Georgetown (Guyana) to Toronto,ON (Canada) with 120 passengers and 8 crew, was climbing out of Georgetown when the crew stopped the climb at FL200 due to a hydraulic failure and decided to return to Georgetown. The aircraft landed on Georgetown's runway 06 at 02:53L (06:53Z) but veered right off the runway and came to a stop to the right of the runway just short of the runway end.

Hoping early news reports are correct that this may be a good landing.

Also, proof of the superiority of this forum...four posts here and there WAS nothing there.
