More Details of Burnt Plane

On Friday morning, the remnants of a burnt twin-engine aircraft with the markings “N-five-four-six-one, were discovered west of Chan Chen Village in the Corozal District. As is customary, no one was found in the area and neither was any cargo. However, a police find included eleven small aluminium buckets, four portable rechargeable led lights and a magazine containing thirty-four live rounds of seven-point six-two ammunition.  Investigators today said they are not certain when and what time the aircraft landed on the registered airstrip which is owned by a Corozal man. A.C.P. Joseph Myvett says that the caretaker of the airstrip and hanger has not been located since the discovery of the burnt plane.
