Beschrijving:
The Aeronaves de Mexico Constellation crew didn't follow the established climb-out procedure and crashed into the La Latilla Mountain.
The flight made a routine take-off from runway 28. A turn to the left was made as though to perform the procedural tear drop turn prescribed by the Airports Manual for climb-out on instruments. Instead of completing the procedural turn, the pilot continued on a straight course for about two minutes in a southwesterly direction. Then, on making a right turn the aircraft crashed on the mountain peak.

Probable Cause:

PROBABLE CAUSE: "The aircraft did not climb out in accordance with previously approved procedures - the provisions of which are set out in the Airports Manual."
