Narrative:
A Cessna 210 Centurion, with false registration "HC-CHZ", believed to be used to transport drugs crash landed early on Thursday afternoon 19 April 2012, not far from the Mexican border. The plane is retrofitted to carry cargo and while its origin is from Ecuador, it has Mexican registration. There was no cargo on the Cessna but the stretch of road appears to be used as a frequent landing strip.
