Guyana plane crash kills Canadian pilot, Blake Slater

Monday, January 20, 2014

Search teams in Guyana have found the bodies of a Canadian pilot and a local man in the wreckage of a small plane that crashed in a remote western jungle.

Search teams found the bodies of Canadian Blake Slater and a local cargo handler inside the crumpled Cessna Caravan in the heavily forested Mazaruni region, said Chris Correia, a spokesman for Trans Guyana Airways.

The domestic operator employed the Canadian pilot Blake Slater for the last three years.

The bodies will be flown to the capital of Georgetown as soon as possible, said Civil Aviation chief Zulfikar Mohamed.

The small aircraft was en route to pick up fuel and other cargo for mining camps when it crashed Saturday. Slater sent out distress calls before the plane crashed.

Six years ago, a plane conducting geographical surveys in the Mazaruni area disappeared and despite 17 days of search and rescue operations, it was never found. Missing and presumed dead were US pilot James Barker, First Officer Chris Paris, also from the US, and Canadian technician Patrick Murphy.
An investigation into the cause of the crash has started.
