Question: When flying from the United States to an airport in Mexico, you must land at a Mexican airport of entry. When flying to Mexico from the Bahamas, your first landing must be at one of only two airports. Which airports are they?
Answer: The two airports are Tapachula International Airport (MMTP) or the Cozumel International Airport (MMCZ). The first landing in Mexico must be at one of those airports when arriving from South America, Central America, Bahamas, or the Caribbean.

A strong cold front sweeping through England recently ignited strong showers and storms. One of the storms passing through the Midlands spawned a menacing funnel cloud or possible tornado near East Midlands airport, which was photographed just as a Ryanair jet was taking off. However, it’s not clear if the vortex photographed is an actual tornado, because there is no view of the ground. In order for a funnel cloud to be classified as a tornado, it must make ground contact. Credit: Alamy News Team, from ITV News
