Plane crash in Antarctica likely left no one alive

Authorities found the wreckage of a plane that crashed days ago in Antarctica in a condition that suggested no one survived.

Searchers found the damaged plane, a Twin Otter aircraft carrying three people, close to the summit in Queen Alexandra Range, in Antarctica.

The plane "appears to have made a direct impact that was not survivable," Maritime New Zealand said Saturday.

The condition of the three Canadian crew members aboard the aircraft had been unknown since the the flight went missing Wednesday.

    What caused this crash in Antarctica? The difficulties inherent in flying upside down.

    What happened to my Post? I wanted to share a stanza of a wonderful poem written by a very great man. I was hoping someone in this blog would identify the author.

    I had typed both the original French text and my own English translation!

    The crash left lots of people alive, just none in the airplane.
