“At 9.17pm, discoveries were made from the air (in the missing area) in Bournemouth’s Craddalen. Due to the weather, we were unable to land at that location.”The report further states that help is forthcoming. “We’m not on site, so we do not know anything about the four people on board. But we know it was an accident site.”A spokesman for the emergency services told NRK Public Television.

The aircraft was on a training mission as part of the Exercise Gold Response, which included 200 aircraft and about 50 ships.
