U.N. CASA212 plane crash in Haiti - No survivors


11 dead, no survivors. :frowning:

U.N. spokeswoman Michele Montas in New York said the Uruguayan CASA212 aircraft went down in rugged terrain west of Fonds-Verrettes near the border with the Dominican Republic.

The victims were Uruguayan and Jordanian military personnel serving with the 9,000-strong U.N. peacekeeping force that has been in Haiti since a 2004 rebellion ousted former President Jean-Bertrand Aristide, Montas said.

Rest in Peace.

That is sad… :cry:

The Uraguayan Air Force website was available this morning, with an entire article, photos, and history of this aircraft and its mission.

If it comes back on line here is the web address.


Wow! Good pics… I guess just not a good situation. :frowning:
