Investigation continues as rumours mount
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.
