The airplane that fell inside of Mexican territory months ago when Col. H. S. Bishop and Lieut. W. A. Robertson of the San Diego, Cal., flying station, came near losing their lives, has been salvaged and is now in the repair shops at Kelly Field.  The plane reached San Antonio yesterday by freight, coming from Ajo, Arizona.  It was brought there by civilians who entered Mexico about six weeks ago and hauled the plane out on a motor truck.
