A charter plane carrying five passengers to Texas with hopes of getting a Coronavirus vaccine crashed, killing all on board.
The crash took place this week just northwest of the Monterrey metropolitan area when Armando Gonzalez Abella was piloting his Piper airplane with tail number N15349 from the Aeropuerto Del Norte to Laredo, Texas. The pilot was returning to the airport after experiencing an unknown “technical difficulty” but crashed before being able to land, authorities revealed to Breitbart Texas.
The flight was chartered by César Taméz García, Sol Alanís Compeán, Esaú Olmedo Peña, Rosa Peña Olmedo, and Brenda Guajardo Leal. Federal investigators in Mexico are looking into the crash.
While vaccines are readily available in the U.S., Mexico’s government has fallen behind in distribution, leaving the majority of the population unprotected. Currently, Mexico is one of the countries with the highest number of cases and fatalities.
