Guyana plane crash: Canadian pilot, 1 other feared dead
Two people are feared dead after a small plane crashed in the South American country of Guyana.
Civil Aviation Chief Zulfikar Mohamed says Canadian pilot Blake Slater and another person were aboard the single-engine Cessna Caravan when it crashed Saturday in the heavily forested Mazaruni area in western Guyana. He said the plane belonged to domestic operator Trans Guyana Airways and was en route to pick up fuel and other cargo.
It was not immediately clear what led to the crash.
It is the second plane crash in a week to occur in Guyana. A smaller Cessna 206 crashed shortly after takeoff on Jan. 11, injuring three people.
