Shoot Down of Brothers to the Recue Aircraft Remembered on 20th Anniversary

The 20th anniversary of the shoot down of the Brothers to the Rescue aircraft were remembered Wednesday in solemn ceremonies across South Florida.
On Feb. 24, 1996, three American citizens — Armando Alejandre, Jr., Carlos Costa, and Mario de la Peña — as well as one American resident, Pablo Morales, were on a humanitarian mission over international waters when their plane was shot down upon an order from the Cuban government.
The planes of the humanitarians were taken down by a Cuban MiG-29 in international airspace.
