Crashed 737 jet in Guyana overshot runway
The Boeing 737-800 carrying 163 people split in half just short of a ravine after landing on July 30, 2011. Everyone on board survived.
Transport Minister Robeson Benn said Wednesday that the initial investigation found the main factor in the crash was that the plane “made a long landing and touched down with insufficient runway remaining to come to a safe stop.”
Benn says it could take another year for the final report to be issued.
The U.S. National Transportation Safety Board helped Guyana in the investigation.
