On November 4 Learjet 45 XC-VMC crashed into a mixed residential and commercial area in central Mexico City during an approach to Benito Juarez International Airport in clear weather. All nine occupants were killed. Five people on the ground were also killed and another 40 people injured.
Officials are all but ruling out sabotage in the November 4 crash of a Learjet 45 in Mexico City, which killed all nine aboard, including Mexican Interior Secretary Juan Camillo Mourino. Instead, a preliminary report suggests pilot error as a result of encountering wake turbulence from a Boeing 767-300 it was following on approach.
