Did you know that eight years ago a jet crashed that contained four tons of cocaine? This jet was known as the Gulf stream II.
The jet’s fuselage split into pieces on impact and thus spilling cocaine across an area the length of three whole football fields! This jet the gulf stream II (Aircraft #N987SA) was allegedly used in order to transport Central Intelligence Agency rendition prisoners from Europe to the United States and then to Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. It crash landed on September the 24th, 2007 in Mexico and it was in fact carrying roughly four thousand pounds of cocaine onboard. It has been suspected that the jet likely ran out of fuel as it was traveling from Columbia to the United States thus causing the crash.
The Federal Aviation Association’s records lists this place as belonging to an Atef Hanna who was said to reside in Tarpon Springs Florida but at the time of this incident the jet was registered to Donna Blue Aircraft, INC. ICE claims they sold the aircraft to the Drug Enforcement Agency as a part of an undercover operation immediately prior to the crash in Mexico. The ICE undercover agent who brokered this deal, Don Whittington pled guilty to federal tax charges in 1987. He was subsequently released and is currently under investigation for using a Colorado Springs Resort and Spa to launder profits for the sale of this and many other aircrafts used in smuggling busts.
