Narrative:
The plane was found abandoned and empty by law enforcement officers. It likely had been used for transporting drugs. As the plane had landed on soft soil, it was impossible to make the plane flightworthy. In November 2021 the Government of Belize, who had confiscated the plane, sold the plane for scrap.
