Sedena detained 2 men and seized a plane with 1,205 bricks of cocaine (1,356 kgs) at the airport of Palenque, Chiapas.

The incident occurred last Saturday night. After trying to enter Mexican territory through Calakmul, to land on a clandestine runway, the aircraft was detected by the control radars of the Mexican Air Force, which deployed an air operation to intercept it.

Faced with the maneuvers of the Mexican government aircraft, the plane left the national airspace and returned to Guatemalan territory.

In a second attempt, it planned to land in the vicinity of the El Desengaño community, in the municipality of Candelaria, Campeche, where a few months ago another plane was intercepted with a shipment of cocaine.

Neither was possible, after the harassment of Mexican aircraft, the pilot returned to Chapin territory and moments later he entered Mexican territory again through Tenosique, Tabasco.

The Air Force and Navy aircraft were asked to land at the Palenque International Airport, where an operation was already deployed on the ground ready to capture the crew.

The Navy, Sedena, and the National Guard approached the white XB-DAP narco-plane, inside which was a cocaine shipment.

The aircraft with its cargo arrived from Colombia.

This is not the first time that the Palenque International Airport has been used by federal forces to force forced landings of ships with drug shipments. Although on other occasions, the inhabitants of the area have registered air movements at midnight at the airport.


  1. "at midnight at the airport."

    All the times the major loads actually make it through. Can't really afford to stop the billion dollar industry now can we.

  2. Loosing the load and the plane and get arrested, great job guys. Who will get killed now in revenge or failing to deliver or paying the load?

  3. Looks like the Colombians are back in business.

    1. When were the Colombians out of business? I've heard Cocoa is big business in that part of the world

    2. @8:55 What? They have been supplying the Mexican cartels with cocaine since forever. This plane was in Chiapas, Mexico.

    3. They been working with Mexicans non stop for decades.

  4. colombians fly unregistered, show up with bell bottom pants flared collar shirts. Dang did they know its 2020? Its not that easy anymore

  5. Do all major cartels operate in Chiapas?

    1. All major cartels operate everywhere in Mexico. But there are areas where certain groups originate from and are dominant.

  6. Those pilots will be guarded 24/7 & have their familys moved if they have one.
