N987SA: She Don't Lie

The airplane which had originated out of Fort Lauderdale was returning to the United States from Colombia's José María Córdova International Airport.

The Gulfstream II also had a scheduled refueling stop recorded on it's flight log for Cancun , Mexico. Something went wrong because once the plane crossed into Mexico's Air Space from Belize the Mexican Military began tracking and following it. The Mexican Army and the Air Force also waited for the Aircraft in Cancún. The crew clearly had to change that refueling stop and flew west attempting to land at other smaller airports it eventually ran out of jet fuel and crash landed.

A private jet, often contracted by the CIA, crashed in Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula back in September. It was loaded with 3+ tons of cocaine.

The more things change, the more they stay the same.
