Severe winds and heavy snow continued to hamper the search for three Canadians aboard an airplane missing in Antarctica as rescue crews on standby braced for hours of more bad weather.
No information was available on the fate of the three men aboard the ski-equipped Twin Otter, which is owned by Calgary-based Kenn Borek Air.
While the plane’s emergency locator beacon continued to emit signals, rescue crews were unable to establish any radio contact with the trio on board the aircraft.
“Weather is hampering things at the moment,” said Steve Rendle, a spokesman with New Zealand’s Rescue Co-ordination Centre in Wellington, which was organizing the search.
