A Helios Airways Boeing 737 crashed into a mountain in Greece this morning.
It is reported that there were 115 passengers and 6 crew aboard. According to the folks on airliners.net
, shortly after take-off, the pilots reported some sort of problem with the cockpit air conditioning. Radio contact was then lost. The Greek air force scrambled two F-16s; the pilots reported that when they looked through the cockpit window they could see the co-pilot slumped forward across the controls, and no sign of the captain. The airliner subsequently flew into a mountaintop near Athens.
