This time it's a Saab 340 in Mexico. This is the report from Airdisaster.com.

Saab 340 loses engines, lands safely.
Associated Press

TIJUANA, Mexico (AP) - A plane carrying 32 people landed safely on a patch of farm land Thursday after its twin engines failed shortly after takeoff, officials said. There were no reports of serious injury.

The Aerolitoral plane was 15 miles out of this border city, on its way to the municipality of Juarez when it reported engine trouble.

After one engine shut down, pilot Luis Alberto Cabildo radioed that he was planning to set down on deserted land between the towns of Tecate and Ensenada.

The second engine failed as Cabildo was guiding the 11-year-old Saab 340 B in for a landing, said investigators returning from the scene in the sparsely populated Las Palmas Valley.

``At this time we do not know what caused the engines to stop working,'' Aerolitoral, a subsidiary of airline giant Aeromexico, said in a statement released Thursday night.

Six of the 29 passengers and three crew members onboard were taken to hospitals in Tijuana and treated for shock, but sustained no serious injuries, police said.

No other details on the landing and any possible damage to the plane were immediately available.

Thanks for that. I fly in the Saab 340 quite often (when it's full it seems like there's more people than aircraft!). I am glad that this incident was not fatal, even though the report came from airdisaster.com!

This information is incorrect. The SAAB 340 departed Ciudad Juarez (CJS) just across El Paso, Tx and made the emergency landing miles away from Tijuana International (TIJ). Flight was AM2130 operated by the regional carrier Aerolitoral with AM code.

The SAAB 340 was registered in Mexico "XA-ACK".

My friend, I'm not saying it landed in Tijuana, I'm saying it landed near Tijuana. If you have been to Mexico and specifically to Baja California you will know where the Valle de Las Palmas is. If you read my profile, I'm from Mexico and I have been tons of times to Tijuana, Tecate and Mexicali.
By the way, only one passenger went to a Hospital in Tijuana the other 5 injuries went to a Hospital in Tecate.

OK, If you have local information then I'm sure your correct. The closest I've been to Mexico is San Diego so I know the location of Tijuana.
