2 injured after CJIA ground staff accidentally release plane’s tailcone
Two ground staff attached to the Cheddi Jagan International Airport (CJIA) last evening received minor injuries about their bodies after a coworker accidentally released the tailcone of a plane and it fell on them.
The plane involved is registered to World Atlantic Airlines, which has been contracted by Surinam Airways.
Reports are that a ground staff mistakenly pulled the tailcone jettison handle instead of operating stairway switch of the plane, causing the tailcone to be released.
As a result, it hit two other workers who were standing below.
An investigation has been launched.
