These are all over the Caribbean. Often, the drug traffickers would use old planes that didn't cost much in comparison to the tons of cocaine on board, they'd then land in an inconspicuous place (wherever planes weren't expected to land), which also made it difficult or impossible for the plane to take off again.

Here's an interesting article about it: https://m.warhistoryonline.com/featured/war-drugs-fighting-flying-pirates-caribbean.html

I read that and can't help but think "if they just legalized the shit all this would probably stop" I'm not a "drug fag" but I am a "stop wasting money on drug war" fag, it's possible it would pick up in activity for a while but once the price starts to drop, that's it it's not worth it.
