Pilot apologises for error in judgement

Kaieteur News: "Evidence is emerging that the pilot of the Caribbean Airlines Limited craft that ran off the
runway at the Cheddi Jagan International Airport, Timehri, last Saturday, might have made an error of judgement.
In probably the clearest indication of pilot error as the cause of the mishap, a taxi driver, who claimed to have overheard a conversation between the pilot, Fareed Deen, and his crew, related that Deen kept apologizing for what he believes was a human error.
Manfred Williams, who transported the pilot and his crew to the city immediately after the crash, recalled that Deen was inconsolable throughout the journey."
