Just to let you know that a DHC-6 Twin Otter crashed today in Sinai Mountains killing all or board. This plane was attached to the Multinational Force & Observers and it was based in El Gorah base. There were 9 people on board 8 beeing french. The weather conditions there were good, sunny and clear and the plane crashed between 9 and 10 AM.
Very sad too and I pay my respect to the ones that perished and their families.

Any info on the operator? Was it a civilian or an air force aircraft?

Looks like I picked the wrong week to quit posting...

It was French Air Force. What a shame. I was fortunate enough to fly on a French Air Force Twin Otter in the Sinai in 2004, that experience will go down as one in a lifetime for me. The crew was very friendly, and the ride was unforgettable. May all lost RIP.
