Last seen losing altitude quickly over dense woodland in the vicinity and radio contact was lost.  It is believed according to last co-ordinates that the aircraft crashed in the woodland.  Not sure how many on board or whether any survivors. These woodlands are very remote and a search and rescue team with survival skills will need to be deployed as aerial search has proven negative. This team need, to work together and be equipped with basic survival tools as well as first aid kit, Map and compass.  Their mission is to locate the plane and any survivors and administer first aid if applicable and get them to further medical assistance.  On route they will need to solve puzzles, clues to reach the destination as well as use natural resources at their disposal.
