Norway has launched a search and rescue mission for a Lockheed Martin C-130J-30 Hercules with five crewmembers aboard that went missing about 15:50 today.

A Sea King helicopter from Bodo and a P-3 Orion from Andoya are searching the C-130's last known position, according to the Rescue Coordination Centre of North Norway.

The C-130 was last reported on radar slightly west of Kiruna at 14:55, the rescue centre says.

The tactical airlifter was participating in a military exercise called Cold Response.

The Norwegian Air Force has acquired four C-130J-30s, having retired six C-130Hs since the new aircraft arrived in 2008.

The area of the suspected crashsite of the C130J Hercules has been located. The crew is still not found.
The aircraft was on its way from Evenes in northern Norway to Kiruna in the far north of Sweden when it went missing. The plane was participating in the Cold Response military training exercise.



The rescue operation is now being led by the Swedish Police.
Four Norwegian Military Bell helicopters are involved in the search. In addition the Norwegian Armed Forces are contributing with a large number of soldiers on the ground.
In consultation with the Swedish Rescue Services the Norwegian Armed Forces Sea King helicopter returned back to Bodø, at about 13.00.
The suspected crash site is located. The crew is still not found. The parts Swedish soldiers' found yesterday have been verified as wreckage parts of the airplane. The search operation has changed status to a rescue operation.
Wreckage has been found scattered over a larger area on the west side of North / South Summit of Kebnekaise.
