Portuguese scuba divers find Swiss plane wreck
Portuguese divers have found the remains of a Swiss aircraft that sank off Porto Novo, Madeira, in December 1977.
The Super Caravelle was making a second attempt to land at Santa Cruz Airport when it crashed into the sea after touching down on the runway.
Only 21 of the 57 people on-board the plane survived the accident.
