C-130J Hercules Crash In Sweden Leads To Deaths Of Five Crew

Investigation Underway To Determine Cause Of Fatal Air Accident

20.03.2012

Investigations are underway after five crew members were killed in a plane crash in Sweden involving a Lockheed Martin C-130J operated by the Royal Norwegian Air Force.

Authorities from both countries are now examining the circumstances surrounding the incident on March 15th, when the tactical transport aircraft disappeared from radar during its journey from Evenes in Norway and Kiruna in Sweden.

Despite a search and rescue operation, the wreckage of the crash was only spotted by a Norwegian air force surveillance aircraft two days later.
