97. The three people on the plane were arrested
The best overview of the events is at the Professional Pilot forum who translated some Mexican clippings. It is unclear whether the plane crashed because it was chased or was shot down. The passengers and pilot did escape but were later arrested.



.......The jet went down in the town of Tixkokob in the state of Yucatan, Mexico, 160 miles from beach resort Cancun.

Witnesses said they had seen military helicopters following it until it crashed Tixkokob assistant police chief Ernesto Hernandez said: "The plane was flying over the town for almost two hours. That's why we called the army.".........

It was registered to Donna Blue Aircraft in Coconut Creek, Florida, according to a search of its identification number on the US Federal Aviation Administration's website. But there was no company with that name listed in Coconut Creek........


I translated this article from the todays local paper "Diario de Yucatan"

Police Secrecy
A mystery surrounds to the case of the airplane with drugs at Tixkokob
Third person stopped: a Colombian who was on the high ground.

In spite of the tight police secrecy that surrounds to the case of the narco airplane at Tixkokob. Some new details were revealed yesterday that fortify the hypothesis that it indicates that the narcotics traffickers had contacts in Quintana Roo as in Yucatan as much.

The authorities arrested a third person, apparently a Colombian, who had taken shelter in high ground at Tixkokob near the place where the airplane crash landed than three tons of cocaine destined for Cancn.

The South American, one the crew of the airplane - the other a woman, was taken from the scene at seven at night with the face covered to the facilities of the PGR in Mrida. Where there are also two yucatecans who were arrested yesterday after acting suspiciously near the crash site.

It was known that the soldiers of the Army acted practically single handedly in the operation of the seizure, without the aid of federal or state police, in order to ensure there was no infiltration.
