NASSAU, BAHAMAS — An plane that crashed in Treasure Cay, Abaco on Monday and claimed the lives of two young pilots, reportedly had challenges gaining altitude before taking off.
According to initial reports from the Aircraft Accident Investigation Authority (AAIA), those challenges contributed to the accident.
Officials confirmed the death of Lavan Paul and Jason Allen, advising that remains of both pilots were removed from the aircraft yesterday and will be flown to New Providence for autopsy.
The two pilots were the only individuals onboard the aircraft.
A team of investigators from the capital was dispatched to the island and began the on-scene phase of the investigation.
