Hi!

I always like to see a true old propliner still working in our days, so for me this crash really breaks my heart, I'm glad the the crew came out mostly ok but we lost another Dakota, any details about the registration?
regards
CV990, the Maserati of the skies!

found photos of it (XA-JBR, c/n ?)
plus a spanish article from press at Nuevo Laredo.
FAA said both engines oversped after touch-and-go
seems the pilots made it perfectly smooth into the lake leaving them and the airplane intact
