Experts comb cargo plane crash site in north Greece; 8 dead
PALAIOCHORI, Greece (AP) – Experts are investigating the site of a cargo plane crash in northern Greece that has killed eight crew members.
They say they have found no evidence of dangerous substances but there’s a lot of ordnance that the plane was carrying spread around the crash site.
The An-12 cargo plane smashed into fields between two Greek villages Saturday night and officials said local farmers may not be able to work safely in those fields now.
Serbia’s defense minister said Sunday that the plane was carrying tons of Serbian-made mortars to Bangladesh.
Forensics experts at the site retrieved the remains. Aviation experts won’t try to retrieve the plane’s black boxes until the site is cleared by explosive experts.
