I've searched the web for a few days now, but no word.

I have a pilot buddy that says a plane crashed on take off
from Alphonsinas in Gonzaga Bay the last week or so.
He said they tried taking off in 105F heat fully loaded with 6
passengers. The claim was they stalled into the lagoon North of
the strip in 30' of water. 3 fatalities and 3 made it out.

I'm hope this is not true.

Anyone hear about this?

I heard about it from some friends that live in San Felipe, it is true.

Here is an excerpt from an eye witness account:

An A 36 .... X ( Mex reg ) he landed here first and had lunch, 6 on board ( really a crappy landing here, SW quartering down wind, and too slow on approach and bounced and almost ground looped on a downwind landing, I figured that he was a newbee, I watch them all and grade them) then they ate lunch and decided to send 3 people over to Rancho Grande and picked them up there ( a good move on his part, but he took off down wind and tried to make a low turn and did a classic "stall spin" into the drink ) 3 survived when the back door blew open on impact and there were some jet ski's close by ....watched it all happen, but PIC and co PIC didn't make it and one in the rear didn't make also.... the guy was a doctor from Mexicali ( Dr. Alberto Aveves )

Thanks for the reply and confirmation Dave.

I am sorry that there was loss of life.
Looked up that doctor, and he is one of
the biggest weight loss surgery doctors
in Mexico.

I wonder why the media has not reported this yet.
