As reported by the Tapachula Airport Authority a Cessna registration XB-MSN, departed this airport (MMTP) at 07h20 CDT bound to Puebla Airport (MMPB) but it crashed, 30 minutes later,
near the town of Nuevo Porvenir, Guatemala, some 150 Kms inside the border of Guatemala.

The plane had no previous authorization to fly inside Guatemala. The pilot and five passengers did not survive.

Possible disorientation in airspace not recognized by the pilot and thus took a wrong course or direction, typifying as spiral disorientation.
The possible practice of instrument flight when observing clouds will know its flight route, which caused the loss of orientation of the destination and that will enter a region unknown to the pilot.
