Somewhere in Mexico

Del Norte International Airport (Spanish: Aeropuerto Internacional del Norte, IATA: NTR, ICAO: MMAN) is an airport located in General Escobedo, Nuevo León, working as a secondary airport for Mexico's third largest city, Monterrey. == History == Del Norte was created by American Airlines around the 1940s, when they wanted to start service to Monterrey but there was no airport available. After a number of incidents regarding arrival procedures into Del Norte (A notorious one being Carlos A. Madrazo's accident on June 1969) and increasing traffic forced authorities to build another airport, General Mariano Escobedo International Airport.
