The outgoing director general of the Jamaica Civil Aviation Authority has rejected a suggestion by a letter written that he should resign because of the protracted period it has taken to complete the final report into the December 2009 American Airlines plane crash in Kingston.
Speaking in Manchester last night Colonel Oscar Derby said the investigation into the plane crash cannot be rushed. He says the investigator must be given sufficient time to complete his probe.
According to Colonel Derby a few weeks ago after getting the report from the investigator, he received some new information on the matter. As a consequence, he says the final report has to be reviewed. Colonel Derby is heading to Curaçao to take up a similar position in the aviation industry.
