5 military members missing after helicopter crash now presumed dead
An RCAF investigation team were scheduled to leave Canada today to begin work on the crash investigation.
The PM and Defence minister have both released statements.
The flight recorders were recovered and will be analysed at the National Research Council in Ottawa. The wreckage itself though may be as much as 3,000 metres below the surface of the sea.
The debris is scattered over a wide area, which one defence analyst has said may indicate a high speed impact with the ocean. However, he emphasised that this only speculation until we have actually seen important parts of the wreckage.
