Détails:
An Ecuadorian cargo plane crashed in a lagoon near Cozumel, Mexico, killing all eight on board. The airplane carried a herd of cattle from New Orleans, U.S., to Quito, Ecuador. A refueling stop was planned in Belize. It crashed in a lagoon while attempting to land at an airfield near Cozumel.
The airplane involved in the accident was reported to be a C-46 registered HC-SIA. Fleet records suggest this airplane was msn 30465, which was sold to Wien Alaska as N4761C in July 1948 after supposedly having flown just three months as HC-SIA. Likely HC-SIA was a different msn.
