  • Almost 27 years after the M/S Estonia sank in the Baltic Sea, killing over 800 people on board, investigators have revisited the wreck of the ferry.

  • Last week the Swedish and Estonian safety investigation authorities carried out a pre-study of the sunken ship with sonar, after a recent tv documentary revealed previously unknown holes on the hull of the ship.

  • Chair of investigations at the Swedish Accident Investigation Authority, Jonas Bäckstrand says we can expect preliminary results from the recent examination this fall.
