Détails:
A Cessna Caravan was hijacked by suspected drug traffickers while en route from Managua to Bluefields, Nicaragua. On August 1, the body of the pilot was discovered in Zipaquira, Colombia. He had reportedly been shot twice in the head and once in the back. The plane, a Cessna Caravan, had reportedly been chartered in the name of a fictitious environmental organization. Nicaraguan authorities suspect that the hijacked aircraft was intended to be used for narcotics trafficking operations.
In August the airplane was found by Colombian police in a hangar at Villavicencio-La Vanguardia Airport. The aircraft had been repainted and new registration marks had been applied: HK-3539.
This registration is also said to have been used on a Frontera Colombia Cessna 208A (msn 208-00165).
