Mariano Barberán
Birth: Jun. 14, 1895
Castilla-La Mancha, Spain
Death: Jun. 20, 1933, Mexico

Aviator. After graduating from the Engineers Corps Academy as a first lieutenant, in 1918 he joined the Aviation Corps where he became an observer. In 1927 he was posted to Cuatro Vientos military airfield in Madrid where he served as a flight instructor, which he combined with navigational studies. In 1933 he crossed the Atlantic Ocean with lieutenant Joaquín Collar on the "Cuatro Vientos", a Bréguet XIX Super Bidon. They left Seville (Spain) on June 10 and landed in Camagüey (Cuba) 39 hours later. The last leg of their voyage, Havana – Mexico City, that was supposed to be routine, proved to be fatal as the "Cuatro Vientos" never landed in the Mexican capital. Searched for weeks by the Mexican air force, the wreck was never found. (bio by: Manuel Comerma)
