Unread post by airbourne » Mon Nov 20, 2006

Just a question for you guys
Did any of Liat aircrafts crash over the years they been in service. I don't recall any going down but i could be wrong. One old man i spoke to seem to think one did but he's not sure, so i thought someone here could clear things up for me. By the way the so call flight took off from hewanorra to st.vincent. never made it..

Actually the captain of LI 319 was from Guyana and there was also another crash in St Vincent in the vicinity of the volcano. An Islander with at least 8 pers. on board flew into the mountain in IMC weather. The Captain was a Vincentian.

I agree that the Capt. was Philip Roach, he and his wife were good friends of mine...but he was a Guyanese not a Barbadian.

P.S. I used to be a LIAT pilot and was there when that tragedy happened.
