flights for mexico - The Crash




The Crash of Twa Flight 260


The Crash of Twa Flight 260



At 7:05 am on February 19, 1955, TWA Flight 260 took off from the Albuquerque airport for a short flight to Santa Fe. The plane's approved air route was a dog-leg running north-northwest from Albuquerque, then east-northeast into Santa Fe to avoid flying over the Sandia Mountains. At 7:08 am the Ground Service Help at the airport saw Flight 260 about half a mile north of the airport terminal headed directly toward Sandia Ridge, almost entirely obscured by storm clouds. An Air Force Colonel standing in front of his home a mile and half northeast of the airport saw Flight 260 pass overhead and observed that if the plane was eastbound, it was too low; if it was northbound, it was off course. At 7:12 am the plane's terrain-warning bell sounded its alarm. Instinctively looking out the window, both pilots suddenly saw the sheer west face of the Sandias just beyond the right wingtip. It was an appalling shock considering they should have been ten miles further west. Reacting instantly, they rolled the plain steeply to the left and pulled its nose up. When the heading indicator indicated a westerly heading, they started to level the wings. It was their final act. Hidden by the storm, another cliff-side lay directly ahead. When they struck it, they were still in a left bank, nose high. Charles Williams, one of the first men on the scene of this horrific crash, has spent a lifetime unraveling the enigmas of TWA Flight 260's final flight. It is a tale of days, minutes, and seconds spread out over the span of half a century and a dramatic mystery cast upon a beautiful and treacherous mountain. In the end, Williams helps solve some of the controversies surrounding the crash, including the Civil Aeronautics Board's over-swift determination that the pilots were at fault.

At the mouth of the marina was a line of boats just covered with pelicans. We got our boat to pull up next to them for some good close-up shots.

Flight: The Story of Virgil Richardson, A Tuskegee Airman in Mexico






Virgil Richardson has blazed his own unique trail through the twentieth century: a co-founder of Harlem's American Negro Theater and radio personality in 1930s, a World War II pilot, and an expatriate through much of the last fifty years. In Flight, this remarkable man tells the story of his life in his own vivid words. Educated in Texas, Richardson set out for New York City to try his hand on the stage. On the brink of success as an actor, he was drafted into the army at the dawn of World War II. After overcoming numerous obstacles, Richardson became a Tuskegee cadet in 1943, and later saw action above the battlefields of Europe. Upon returning to the U.S., and after a series of frustrations, Richardson decided to move to Mexico, where he encountered a society with a very different racial climate than the one he had left behind. He spent most of the 1950s and '60s there, making his way as a performer and teacher. Flight draws the reader into the rich and fascinating life of a determined individual unwilling to accept the limited options available to him in Jim Crow America.
