Absturzstelle in Mexiko


Absturz geschah um 11.06 am 26 März 1936.
Um 11 Uhr wurde Amecameca überflogen.
Die Geschwindigkeit dürfte bei 120 kmh gelegen haben.

Die Absturzstelle befindet sich recht weit von den Vulkanen, so dass Zweifel an dieser Aussage bestehen.

Der damalige Minister für Kommunikationen und Transport war
