Thanks to the efforts of a Flexjet Learjet 31 crew, a former airline pilot and his three passengers were spared spending a cold February evening outdoors after their Bonanza A36’s engine quit over Mexico’s rugged Baja peninsula.

En route from Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, to Van Nuys, Calif., in mid-afternoon early this year, Learjet pilot Adam Fine and copilot Steiner Krogstad picked up an ELT distress signal on 121.5.
