Mexican-American singer Jenni Rivera's airplane missing


MEXICO — Authorities in northern Mexico are confirming that a small plane carrying Mexican-American singer Jenni Rivera has gone missing after taking off from the city of Monterrey.

Jorge Domene, spokesman for the Nuevo Leon state government, told Milenio television on Sunday that the plane left Monterrey about 3:30 a.m after a concert there. It was bound for Toluca, which is located outside Mexico City.
Domene says a search for the plane was launched early Sunday, with helicopters from the local civilian protection agency flying over the state. He says seven people are believed to be aboard the U.S.-registered Learjet 25.
The 43-year-old who was born and raised in Long Beach, California, is known for her interpretations of Mexican regional music known as nortena and banda.

(So sad especially since she's known to travel with her kids often. Hoping she's okay. Didn't want to tag this death because it isn't confirmed yet.)

i mostly hate the experience of the airport...i have to fly so much these days that i just dread it...the lines, the delays, the terrible people. for the flight part, i only get nervous if there is extreme turbulence.

I don't mind flying, I just hate all the other people flying lol There's always someone who does something asinine/rude/whatever.

i don't mind flying, i hate all the preparation/waiting that is involves, but mostly because whenever i fly it's usually 12h long and on my own. short-distance flights are a breeze.

I don't hate it, but it's boring as fuck and I always end up with phantom smells of the food.
