On March 1929, Escobarista’s rebellion exploded, sponsored by an old Obregonistas. At the beginning of the month, General Manuel Aguirre, commanding the 64th regiment, got the power without firing a shot. In revenge the federal powers from Naco sent an airplane to attack the rebels and with that action create the revolution dropping a few bombs over Nogales without any damage. The people who empowered the town answered with some machine guns from the roofs, without any damage to the airplanes. There was only one casualty caused by a heart attack, scared by the bomb explosion. That same month, a hooded man appeared at night driving a tank on the Morley street of the neighbour population, entering Mexico in the exit of the border. The next day this man began helping the federals in Naco. It seems that the tank was bought in 1927 for fighting the Yanquis, but the officials of the USA border prohibited its exit of United States, and it was kept in a warehouse in Nogales Arizona.[
