Update 0830 zulu time – Orion spotted heat signature – no results

As of 0830 zulu time, the Norwegian transport plane that went down in the mountains yesterday with a crew of four men and one woman, has still not been found.

The weather in the area has been terrible with visibility as low as 20 meters and the treasonous mountain terrain still pose a threat – there is a very real chance of avalanches.

Earlier today a long range reconnaissance plane – Orion P3 – picked up a faint heat signal – but by the time the ground troops arrived there was nothing there to be found. Animals in the mountains have been known to give off heatsignals that can give these false positives.

But no stone is left unturned. The weather should be clearing up today and the search continues.

All we can do here in the lowlands is hope and pray for the best both for the missing crew and the brave troops out to find them.
