Taipei, Feb. 8 (CNA) Rough weather has impeded the use of hydrophonic equipment to locate a missing Black Hawk helicopter in the sea near Orchid Island (Lanyu) off the southeastern coast of Taiwan, though search operations are ongoing, according to the Aviation Safety Council (ASC) Thursday.
The UH-60M Black Hawk helicopter, which belonged to the National Airborne Service Corps, disappeared near Lanyu late Monday while transporting a patient from Lanyu to Taitung in southeastern Taiwan.
The helicopter was carrying pilot, copilot, one mechanic, one nurse, the patient and a family member.
