The Falkland Islands Government has announced that its Islands' Air Service, (FIGAS), and Workboat Services Limited are working in the recovery plan of the FIGAS aircraft that was involved in an incident on Monday 11 June 2018.
On Tuesday 26 June 2018 the Concordia Bay ferry will deliver equipment to Beaver Island in order to start the process of preparing the aircraft to be brought into Stanley.
