Emotional visit to Barbados for son of pilot of bombed Cubana plane - Stabroek News - Guyana

Stabroek News  "Barbados Nation) Wilfredo Pérez Jr has mixed feelings about his trip to Barbados – on one hand he feels genuine sympathy and acceptance but on the other, the pain of reliving the worst day of his life.

If the name sounds familiar to those who have first-hand knowledge of the events of October 6, 1976, then that is no coincidence.

Pérez shares his name with the pilot of that fateful plane trip now known as the Cubana air disaster. He is in fact the son of that pilot, and he is here to take part in a week of activities in commemoration of that tragedy."
