AN Air Services Limited (ASL) Britten-Norman Islander aircraft – bearing registration number 8R-GER crashed at the Chenapau airstrip on Wednesday.

The Guyana Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA) has since launched an investigation to ascertain the circumstances that led to the crash.

Reports say the accident occurred at approximately 15:30hrs on November 1, 2017 and preliminary reports indicate that the aircraft was en route from Mahdia to Chenapau when a mechanical problem developed in a section of the wheel causing it to swerve off the runway upon landing.

There are no reports of injuries or fatalities; however, the carriage section of the aircraft was badly damaged.

February last an ASL Cessna 206 aircraft crashed on landing at the Kurupung airstrip, Cuyuni/Mazaruni.

The crash happened at Kurupung Bottom. The pilot Chris King, a local businessman, sustained a broken hip and other injuries after the aircraft bearing registration 8R-CNK flipped on landing.
