Apologies if someone else has already posted this, but here's a link to a news report of one man's efforts to identify all the Mexican victims of the 1948 Los Gatos plane crash.

Los Gatos Victims .

Hey Fred, that article is mind blowingly awesome. I've always loved this song of Woody's so much. Thank you so much for posting this info. I'll let every one I know who loves or still sings Woody's songs.

Cheers,

Andrez

No Juan or Rosalita, but there's a Jesus and a Maria.

Great investigative reporting, which is an important part of the folklore surrounding the crash.

Yes there is a Juan, look again. And while there's no Rosalita, there is a Rosalio.

Not that I'm imagining Woody somehow knew the names.

New song challenge, I think. And all they were once called was just deportees. This is great. Not just for the song, but for the survivors, or rather their descendants by now. There was nothing worse than waiting for the confirmation of something you know is terrible and wish were not true.

It's the natural conclusion to a very long story.

Joe Offer has been reporting on his personal search for information about the crash since 1997 - see his Deportees thread.
