The Manager of Fly Montserrat, Captain Nigel Harris, has provided MNI Alive with an official statement from the airline regarding the crash of their aircraft, Flight 107, shortly after takeoff from the VC Bird International Airport.
See statement from Fly Montserrat below:
I can confirm that a FlyMontserrat aircraft crashed shortly after take off at V C Bird International airport around 1600 today.
On board were the pilot and 3 passengers.
We are sad to report that three people have died - two passengers and the pilot, Jason Forbes. One passenger has been critically injured and taken to hospital.
The Air Accidents Investigation Branch from the Department for Transport in the UK has been informed and until their team make their report it would be inappropriate to comment further on the cause of the accident.
Our thoughts and condolences are with the families and friends of those on board.
