Detectives have confirmed that the mysterious aircraft which landed in the North West District earlier this week, was linked to the other aircraft which crashed and killed a pilot; along with a quantity of cocaine.
A usually reliable source told The Guyana Ledger that pilot was positively identified on Tuesday. Police confirmed that onboard the aircraft, there were more than 300 kilos of cocaine on board. So far, all occuapants remain in custody, while one remains under police guard at the Georgetown.
While detectives have drawn a nexus between the aircrafts, there is still uncertainty as to whether the plan was destined for another location, rather than Guyana.
The police in a release earlier this week said, “Information received that they were heading to Suriname with another aircraft when the said aircraft developed mechanical problems.”
It was further stated that as a result of the observation, the pilot crashed landed the aircraft at 9 Miles which caused one of the occupants to sustain a fractured right arm and minor bruises about his face of which he confirmed he received from the sudden impact.
