Picture of Jet found in Peten: Noti Impacto Peten

By BBN Staff: On Monday, BBN reported that authorities in Peten found a suspected narco-jet and two vehicles that transported drugs with an AK-47 inside of the vehicle.

A report from Publinews.com published today reports that the registration number of the jet found in Peten was traced back to previous clandestine jet landings in Belize and Venezuela.

The report notes that the Aviation Safety Network database provided documents confirming that the N818LD license plate of the jet that landed in Peten on Monday morning had also appeared on a very similar jet that landed in Belize on April 24, 2018. In photos from that scene on the Sarteneja Road, the number was visible on the side of the jet to the rear.

The document embedded in the report details that the “illegal flight” Hawker Siddeley HS-125-700 that landed on the San Estevan Road in Orange Walk in 2018 is suspected to have been used for the trafficking of drugs. The plane found in Belize did not have seats for passengers.

The records says it was an abandoned corporate jet and held registration number N818LD.

The same registration number was used on another plane on March 7, 2018 in Venezuela and is also suspected of being used for illicit cargo. The report noted that the registration number is phony and is being used by drug traffickers in their shipment of mass quantities of narcotics. Recently in Belize, there has been a notable increase in the frequency of suspected narco-jet landings and most regrettably, authorities have seemed stumped in strategizing how to crack down on landings.
