Wreckage of private jet found in Mexico
Wreckage of Bombardier Challenger 601 that disappeared with 14 people (3 crew members, 11 passengers) on board on Sunday evening was found on Monday in northern Mexico.
The air traffic controllers lost contact with the private jet after it abruptly lost altitude over the state of Coahuila in northern Mexico. Authorities flying over the area looking out for any signs of the jet spotted the wreckage. The report was confirmed by head of Monclova International Airport in Coahuila, Miguel Villarreal.
The jet was flying a group of passengers back from Saturday night’s middleweight title fight in Las Vegas in which Mexican boxer Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez defeated Daniel Jacobs of the US.
Meanwhile, Sukhoi aircraft that caught fire and had to make an emergency landing at Sheremetyevo airport, Moscow last Sunday is said to have been struck by lightning mid air, said the sources.
There were 78 persons on board and about 40 passengers were killed in the incident. However, the official report is yet to come.
