"You're Gonna Die Up There" Chilean Military Plane Carrying 38 People Crashes En Route To Antarctica

Chilean Military Plane Carrying 38 People Crashes En Route To Antarctica

A Chilean military plane with 38 people on board has crashed on its way to Antarctica, Chile's air force said Tuesday. Air force officials say they have not been able to locate the Hercules C-130 transport, but based on the number of hours it's been missing, have determined it likely crashed. A search and rescue mission is ongoing, The Associated Press reports. "My thoughts and prayers are with the families of the 38 crew members and passengers of the FACh (Air Force) C-130 plane," Chilean president Sebastian Piñera wrote on Twitter. The plane took off Monday from the city of Punta Arenas in Patagonia, headed for King George Island, Antarctica. The crew had been assigned to help perform maintenance tasks at a Chilean base there, the BBC reported. Air force Gen. Eduardo Mosquiera told local media that the plane did not activate a distress signal and may have been forced to perform a water landing. He also said the pilot had extensive flying experience. The air force said it lost contact with the plane 450 miles into what should have been a 770-mile flight. On Twitter, officials posted a map of the plane's last point of contact, somewhere within the remote Drake Passage, an icy, penguin-populated stretch of ocean off the edge of the continent. The plane was carrying 17 crew members and 21 passengers, the BBC reported, including a Magellanes University student and two civilians who worked for an engineering and construction firm contracted to do work on the Antarctic base.
