Mexican Copter Misses Mark; Lands In Texas

LAREDO, Texas, Aug. 7 (UPI) — The crew of a Mexican military helicopter was allowed to fly back across the border after mistakenly landing in Texas, U.S. Customs officials said.

The chopper touched down Saturday afternoon at Laredo International Airport after apparently mistaking the airport for a landing strip in Nuevo Laredo.

“The only thing that I can tell you is that they did land here,” agency spokeswoman Mucia Dovalina told the Houston Chronicle. “It was by mistake. They were processed and they were returned to Mexico.”

The agency did not say how many people were aboard the aircraft or if they were armed.

The Chronicle said the incursion was the latest inadvertent border crossing by the Mexican military since troop strength along the border has been increased in the battle against drug traffickers.
