CALLOUT: Search for overdue helicopter and passengers

On Wednesday night into Thursday morning a multi agency, multi team group was assembled to search for a helicopter overdue on a flight from the Luton area to Dublin.  NEWSAR sent a party of five members to join the search during the second operational period on Thursday morning and had another larger group ready to deploy for the third operational period on Thursday.

These team members joined others from South Snowdonia SRT, Aberdyfi SRT, Aberglaslyn MRT, Llanberis MRT and Ogwen Valley MRO, together with the RAF Mountain Rescue Service.  Sadly on Thursday morning one of the volunteer parties found the site where the helicopter was located.  All five occupants were deceased.

Our condolences go out to the family and friends of those that have died.
