In­ves­ti­ga­tion con­tin­ues as ru­mours mount

Bray People - - Bray People -

IN­VES­TI­GA­TIONS are still un­der­way into the cause of the plane crash which left one young man or­phaned as both his par­ents and his only brother died in the ac­ci­dent.

The re­mains of Sharif Booz, in his mid-50s, his wife Mar­garet O’Kennedy Booz, also in her 50s, their 14 year old son Ay­man and his best friend Charles Froud (14) were air­lifted to hospi­tal from Church Moun­tain on Sun­day af­ter be­ing re­moved from the wreck­age.

An Army He­li­copter lifted the wreck­age from the crash site on Mon­day and trans­ported it to the Depart­ment of Trans­port’s Air Ac­ci­dent In­ves­ti­ga­tion Unit in Gor­manstown, County Meath.

A full tech­ni­cal ex­am­i­na­tion took place on Tues­day but the cause of the ac­tual crash still re­mains a mys­tery at this time.

There has been spec­u­la­tion that winds of up to 100 mph hour might have been re­spon­si­ble but noth­ing has been con­firmed.

The plane hit the ground with such force that res­cue per­son­nel had to dig the top end of the plane out of the ground it was buried so deep.

Sharif Booz was an ex­pe­ri­enced pi­lot and had used Kil­rush air­field on nu­mer­ous oc­ca­sions while vis­it­ing a sec­ond home they owned in Newbridge.
