[www.inewsguyana.com] – iNews Guyana has received reports from an iReporter in Mahaica, East Coast Demerara that debris from an aircraft washed up on the Mahaica Foreshore on Thursday morning (March 27).
The iReporter, who identified himself as ‘Harry’ said that the debris has the initial “NY.”
Director General of the Guyana Civil Aviation Authority Zulficar Mohamed moments ago told iNews (www.inewsguyana.com) that the department received the report also and a team is being mobilized to travel to the area where an investigation will be carried out.
He was however quick to point out that the piece of the aircraft which was spotted by the fisherman could not be part of the missing Malaysia Airline Flight M370 which went down in the Indian Ocean on March 8.
The Director General said that there are no recent reports of any aircraft in Guyana, the Caribbean Region or South America that went down over the sea hence there can be no immediate reference to a possible connection between the suspected debris and a missing aircraft.
iNews (www.inewsguyana.com) will provide more information as it becomes available.
