Narrative:
A U.S. registered Cessna 152, on a delivery flight to Brazil, coming from Piarco International Airport - TTPP, Trinidad, made a forced landing in a rice field at Wakenaam Island, Essequibo Islands-West Demerara, Guyana.
It is believed that the aircraft force landed because it ran low on fuel, due to heavy winds and miscalculation. There were no ferry tanks on the aircraft.

Both occupants escaped unhurt.
