Update 2200 zulu time – Siv’s last flight

I made this video that shows the approximate flight path of the missing airplane “Siv” with 5 crewmembers aboard that went missing yesterday March 15. 2012.Observe the extremly jagged mountain formation. At the end of the film, I pause and give a panorama from the search area.The weather is extremely difficult in the area. High winds and snow with just a few meters visibility makes the search next to impossible. The avalanche alert is also very high.It was just reported now that an aircraft seat with fuel on has been found by mountain rescue climbers.But the search is executed with determination to find the plane and the crew. This evening the commanding general commented that what happened in the Andes when 16 passengers survived a crash and some of them managed to walk out of the mountain range after 72 days to get help is well remembered.I hope and pray that this crash also would present survivors, but the huge area the pieces from the plane was scattered over, could suggest otherwise.The film about the Andes survivors is called “Alive!” and is well worth seeing!
