“Sometime around 1:30 p.m. a joint team of Police and BDF responded to information some two miles in an off-road off the Coastal Road where they found the burnt remains of an aircraft in the vicinity of an illegal airstrip. Initial investigations revealed that the burnt remains seem to have been there for several days. Police investigation along with BDF and Civil Aviation into this matter continues.”
Officers say they combed the surrounding area and found nothing illegal. They also have not been able to establish anything surrounding the plane’s origin or purpose. As for reports that a BDF bomb specialist had confirmed that explosives were used to destroy the aircraft, Police say they do not have any such information.
