It is with great sadness to report that the Beech Bonanza crashed shortly after take-off from Pago Pago in American Samoa. Haris Suleman, 17, was trying to complete a round the world flight in less than 30 days and was due back home in Indiana within days. Joining him was his father Babar Suleman, who is also a pilot. It is confirmed that the body of Haris Suleman has been recovered however his father is still missing.
Investigators are still trying to locate the aircraft however emergency beacons were transmitting signals. A plane has been dispatched to help in the search for Babar Suleman.
Our condolenses to the family for the loss of Haris Suleman who was a promising young aviator and we hope Babar Suleman is found alive and well!

Its chief executive, Geoff Bowmaker, says the new name will apply from August the 1st. He says the Our Airline name has served the company well for the past eight years but he says the new name recognises the proud history of Nauru's aviation and the natural and primary role of its airline in servicing the people of Nauru.
The change comes as the airline prepares to bring a 737 freight aircraft into service.
