Danish Military Chief Killed In Crash

A Danish air force jet carrying the head of the country’s armed forces crashed on approach at the Faeroe Islands’ foggy airport Saturday, killing all nine people on board, the army said.

Adm. Hans Joergen Garde was making his first official visit to the islands since being named chief of staff April 1. Also killed were his wife, Anne, three aides and four crew members, said Sgt. Peter Grona, an army spokesman.

All nine bodies were recovered from the crash site and put on a navy vessel to be returned home, Grona said.

Garde, 57, was the chief of the Danish navy prior to becoming chief of all Danish armed forces.

The Faeroes are 18 semi-independent Danish islands halfway between Scotland and Iceland.
