Aerial search teams on Thursday morning sighted the wreck at the peak of the ranges, according to Nyandarua County Commissioner Boaz Cherutich.

“Its a major breakthrough. Our search team did not go to bed, its now a matter of landing to do the rescue,” he said.

“The rescue team has strategised on how to land and conclude the job.”

The plane has been missing for over 36 hours and efforts to locate it on Wednesday were hampered by bad weather.

The only achievement that the multi-agency team recorded on Wednesday was putting logistics in place, including a command centre at Njambini Boys High School.

On Thursday, Mr Cherutich said they had stepped up their efforts, with seven helicopters on standby.

Two aerial cranes (heavy helicopters) from Kenya Defence Forces and Kenya Police are set to lead rescue efforts once the cloudy and misty weather clears.

The giant helicopters will guide five lighter choppers that will be used to lift passengers and crew, whose condition is yet to be known.

The light choppers were expected to take off from the command centre any minute from 8am.
