Another mysteriously empty cargo
plane has landed and been
abandoned in Belize...and if these
unscheduled visits continue, the

airspace and officials are working with their stateside
counterparts to dig up more information on the plane's
pedigree. Police believe the drug plane may have been

Queen Air will become the property of the Government of
