All 4 individuals on board a U.S. military airplane were eliminated when it crashed in a remote part of northern Norway on Friday throughout a NATO-led basic training workout, regional cops stated on Saturday.

“As far as the police are aware, all four are of American nationality,” cops stated. Prime Minister Jonas Gahr Stoere tweeted acknowledgements over what he stated was the death of 4 Americans.

The MV-22B Osprey airplane coming from the U.S. Marine Corps was participating in a workout called Cold Response.

Rescue services reached the crash website by land early on Saturday after helicopters were not able to land due to bad weather. Gale-force winds were blowing, heavy rains were falling, and there was a threat of avalanches, according to regional weather report.

“Police reached the crash site at around 0130 CET (0030 GMT). It is regrettably confirmed that all four on board the plane have perished,” Ivar Bo Nilsson, head of the operation for Nordland cops, stated in a declaration.

Police were examining the reason for the crash although their work was stopped since of the weather. The work was set to resume when the weather condition enhances.

Some 30,000 soldiers from 27 nations are associated with Cold Response, a workout created to prepare NATO member nations for the defence of Norway.
