Pilot killed in plane crash


GEORGETOWN, Guyana, Jul 25 2017 – A pilot was killed when a plane owned by Roraima Airways crashed as it approached an airstrip in the western section of Guyana on Tuesday.

Dead is the airline’s chief pilot Captain Collin Martin.

The highlander aircraft crashed just before sunset.

Martin – a former member of the Guyana Defence Force, was the only person in the aircraft that was doing a regular shuttle flight to the community of Eteringbang.

It’s reported that another Roraima Airways plane was flying on the same mission when the pilot noticed the crashed aircraft.

Martin’s body has since been removed from the wreckage.
