Assuming there was no "ducane" kind of pinger on board,
now ships are performing side scan sonar sweep of seabed...

There's a new official press realease from Helitrans

They still didn't found them or the helicopter. Now they will search on land, too.
On the sea, the German Navy used hi-tech sonars for the past two days but nothing showed up.

Search pattern of the MS "Passau":



... as found on Marinetraffic.com

It looks like they were taking a short cut over the bay and that it hit them right in the middle of it.

Thats true, draw a direkt course from Lübeck airport to Halmstad airport, that fits almost perfectly to this position.

A very black night, poor visibility, low cloud & snow, SP in an single squirrel out over 4 degree water. What a horrible place to be.

Did the machine have any kind of stabilisation or AFCS?

Someone should check the hydraulic actuators very carefully.

No parts of the helicopter were found since the crash, so my opinion is that they rather made an emergency landing than a crash and the wreck is still complete. I think we will know more in the next days.

Weather and some technical problems prevented the recovery last night. A news update will be given by the authorities later this day. Both persons on board were not found in the wreck or vicinity.

Shawn,

Appologies if I sound abit harsh, but what the F...k do you mean with such a statement with the helicopter still in the water??

Or maybe you can be so kind and e-mail those investigators in Germany your conclusion and save them the trouble...

This is probably one of the most uninformative bit of information with regards to an accident I have EVER read.
