Summary: Mexican Interior Minister Juan Camilo Mourino, 37, was killed when the executive jet he was flying in crashed next to a building, 4.8 kilometers from the airport where it was to land. A preliminary investigation found the jet's pilots didn't immediately follow instructions to slow down and appeared to be nearly one nautical mile too close behind a Boeing 767-300 on the same flight path to Mexico City's international airport. In addition, neither pilot had legitimate certification to fly. Wake turbulence.
