Two found dead in Norway plane crash

Oslo, April 3: Bodies of two people were recovered Wednesday from the site where an ultralight plane crashed Monday while flying over the mountains northwest of Voss, a city in Norway’s western county of Hordaland.

The two men had been missing after the plane, having taken off from the Boemoen airport near Voss at 4.00 p.m. local time (1500 GMT) Monday, did not land as planned the same night.

In an extensive search operation, a police Sea King helicopter Tuesday sighted the wreckage of the plane near the Stora Volavatnet lake, about 12 km northwest of Voss.

The bodies were found in the cockpit which was under snow, ice and water, said the Norwegian news agency NTB, quoting a local police officer.
