Hunt on for explorer’s lost plane

Date: 28/09/2009

A Norwegian team embarked on a two week expedition to find the submerged wreck of a plane which carried Norway’s great polar explorer Roald Amundsen. Amundsen was aboard a Latham 47 flying boat when the aircraft disappeared over the sea on its way to the Arctic island of Spitsbergen in 1928. Two ships have set sail from the Norwegian city of Tromso.
