C.E.O. George Lovell: Report on B.D.F. Helicopter Crash was Professional Done

It’s been one week since official preliminary reports were released on the helicopter crash of February twenty-seventh that claimed the life of B.D.F. majors, Adran Ramirez and Radford Baizar and crew members, Corporals Yassir Mendez and Reynaldo Choco. The military aircraft went down into the Gales Point Lagoon while the team was on a narco-trafficking operation in which sixty-nine bales of cocaine were intercepted off the Coastal Road.  Aside from a preliminary report on what transpired, the Honduras Air Force has also issued a report in which it noted that while human factor caused the fatal crash, there were many shortcomings in the conduct of the operation.  Over the weekend, News Five caught up with C.E.O. George Lovell who shared some brief comments on the investigation, which he says was conducted professionally.

(Ret.) Col. George Lovell, C.E.O., Ministry of National Security

“We had a set of professionals who were given the task to investigate and to report to our people. And the reports that they have placed on the websites in my mind is a report that was done from a very professional standpoint. We had taken the opportunity to have our stakeholders, our partners, our friends from Honduras, the British, the Americans to partner with us and I was made to understand that there are independent reports that have been provided to the team. You also know that our own Civil Aviation Department has been involved with the whole process. And again, they have done a remarkable job in terms of the reporting and the work that they have done.”
