Update March 17. 1200 zulu time – wreckage found…
The missing Hercules C-130J transport plane – with a crew of 5 – I have been writing about the last couple of days, is confirmed found near the top of the highest mountain in Sweden, Kebnekaise. Norwegian patrols are at the top now giving assistance to Swedish Rescue Climbers rappelling into the glacier area where the wreckage is spread.
The chances of finding the crew safe and sound is unfortunately bleak.
The weather in the area is somewhat better today, but not good. The risk og avalanches is very high indeed.
