Miscalculation forced plane to crash land : Kaieteur News

Kaieteur News: "An experienced aviator told this publication that the American-registered aircraft had run out of fuel due to heavy winds and miscalculation.  He said that the pilot had calculated for winds blowing north-northeast at 10 knots when in actuality the winds were moving from southeast between 15 and 20 knots.
This, he said, resulted in additional resistance to the plane thus causing a slower pace which led to the depletion of fuel."
