The U.S. military will be stepping in to assist the Canadian Armed Forces in recovering a downed Cyclone helicopter off the coast of Greece. Lieutenant-General Mike Rouleau says U.S. Navy experts and technology have started to arrive on the scene to help recover the wreckage, which remains under about 3,000 metres of water. The helicopter crashed on April 29th with six Armed Forces members aboard while participating in a NATO training mission. Officials expect the operation to ramp up next week, with the first priority the recovery of any bodies still inside the helicopter.
Yesterday defence officials provided a news briefing on the subject:
