From local media in Norway:
- Aircraft lost altitude very quickly
- Crash site 9 km from Norwegian border
- 15 by 20 m crater, wreckage within 50 m radius, no large pieces
- Spanish and French crew
- Mayday just before 23:30z picked up at BOO
- Crash site found at 02:15z by RNoAF F16
- No longer a rescue mission

I'll add it's cold in the area, below -30C this morning. This is only about 60 km (due west) from the RNoAF C130 crash at Mt. Kebnekaise a few years ago.
