Canada's Prime Minister Jean Chretien arrived on his Airbus 300, I had the chance to see the aircraft this morning at MTY. Awful colorscheme!

Mexico's President Fox arrived as always on the Mexican Air Force B757-200.

The translators came from Germany and had problems flying to the right city.  Laugh out loud


MONTERREY, Mexico (Reuters) - A German crew providing translation services for a U.N. conference on development financing went to the wrong city, showing up in Monterey, Calif., rather than the meeting site more than 1,500 miles away in Monterrey, Mexico, red-faced U.N. and Mexican officials said Monday.

Won't one of Argentina's current presidents arrive in a Ford Pinto?
Someday, we'll look back at this, laugh nervously, and then change the subject.

Interesting note was that when Bush arrived to MTY in both 744 Castro's plane was in front of him, I saw that on local TV it was a good image when the IL-62 was taxing to the runway and passed in front of both US 744. Castro took off at 5:14 p.m. Local Time.
