    Sad day for RNoAF

    A RNoAF Lockheed C-130J Hercules with 5 norwegian officers on board is reported missing between Norway and Kiruna.
    They were supposed to land at Kiruna airport to pick up personell and cargo at around 2:50 PM today, but did never rech the airport.
    Signals from an emergancy transmitter and heat signals are reported but the crew and plane are not yet found. The plane is just a couple of years old.

    This is a very tragic loss for Norway and the air force. As from what I have read in the media, this particular aircraft was hastily bought when the previous aircraft was just too old to keep repairing.

    May the pilots and crew of this aircraft rest in peace.
