The some 15-minute memorial tribute, to be held at Oslo Gardermoen Air Force base, will begin at 11:00 with prayers. His Majesty King Harald V’s Royal Guard will be playing music preceding this.

Major General Finn Kristian Hannestad, Chief of Staff, will be giving a short speech.

135 Air Wing’s Colonel Diederik Kolff, who lost four officers in the crash, will be receiving the bereaved families and others, before laying a wreath.

Colonel Rolf Folland of 137 Air Wing, to which the fifth deceased officer was attached, will then also lay a wreath in remembrance.

Lieutenant Colonel Truls Audun Ørpen (46), Captain Bjørn Yngvar Haug (40), Captain Siw Robertsen (45), 42-year-old Captain Ståle Garberg, and 35-year-old Captain Steinar Utne died after their Hercules C-130J transport plane hit Sweden’s Kebnekaise mountain during 2012’s Operation Cold Response.
