One of the two planes which were flown from Guyana without air traffic clearance and in violation of a court order, has been allowed to leave Anguilla.
The two small cessna aircraft were detained in Anguilla when they made a fuel stop on Saturday. However, one of the planes was eventually allowed to leave. The other one was detained because it has no air worthiness certificate, according to sources familiar with the case.
The Guyana Civil Aviation Authority is expected to meet later today with officials from the Eugene F. Correia International Airport in wake of the “fly away” incident over the weekend where the two small planes were flown from the airport without a flight plan.
The incident at Ogle created an embarrassing episode over the weekend as the two pilots who had airside access boarded the two planes and departed without ever filing a flight plan and without the knowledge of air traffic controllers.
The company which owns the aircraft was reportedly prevented from taking them out of Guyana because of an ongoing court matter surrounding an interior runway accident that involved another small aircraft.
