Dudley Beek, the pilot, was killed when a jet crashed on Friday morning near St. Mary.
The pilot of a tiny plane that crashed on Friday morning close to Highgate in St. Mary has passed away.
He is Dudley Beek, an engineer who served as the previous commanding officer of the Jamaica Defence Force (JDF) Aviation Wing Reserves.
Beek was evacuated to the University Hospital of the West Indies (UHWI) together with another passenger of the aircraft, where the former passed away from his wounds.
According to reports, the other person is benefiting greatly from the therapy.
According to early accounts, the tiny aircraft was traveling from Kingston to Ian Fleming International Airport in Boscobel, St. Mary.
According to reports, the jet crashed in the parish between Highgate and Hampstead in a densely wooded region.
While investigations go on, it’s still unclear what the goal of the flight was.
In the meantime, the Jamaica Ex-Soldiers Association’s chapter in Jamaica posted on Facebook to offer Beek’s family their sympathies.
It said, “Our President Mr. Hudson Grant, its executives, and members express our deepest sympathies to the Major Dudley Beek family during this difficult time.
“The best pilot was said to be you. I’m going to miss you so much. I appreciate your assistance, Sir “the group claimed.
