From KKTV:

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.
