Personally I'm following this one closely.
Ironically I'm now sitting at the hospital for a lung xray because I have a lot of issues with breathing.
Yes I worked in the navy and on more than one occasion I know I was exposed to mold directly.
For years while I served I had a smoker's cough...
Lots of variables we don't have really. From a quick google search sea temps over there are 13-17 degrees, which is 1-2 hours until exhaustion or unconsciousness.
They should have had survival suits on. They may have deployed a raft. There are still lots of reasons to remain optimistic.
Unfortunately Italian Navy , 1 deceased found, 5 souls missing.
Edit seems to be a civilian account that tracks air travel of Italian military.
I curious how this went down. I experienced a ship having it's Cox'n replaced during workups, but never a CO or XO, or in this case both.
I know with the Cox'n it was a huge deal with the Commodore showing up along with Fleet Cox'n while in port. It had potential to spoil our crew also because...
Yeah like it or not, we are a commonwealth country. No matter how we feel about it, it is our Duty to ensure members of the Royal Family are protected while on our soil. Even if they are here in an unofficial capacity.

Maybe I over blown it by saying 'Many' I seem to recall only the one now, and it irked me so I was seeing red after that, overall I was disappointed by the questions thrown at the PM, it was like they were having a contest in seeing how many ways they could ask the same question phrased...
I hope for the sake of all nations involved, Iran included, that this wasn't intentional.
One thing that makes me wonder though, is why the Iranians didn't close their air space and stopped allowing civilian flights to operate, when they were obviously in a defensive posture.
That works in an open society where the news will probably leak sooner than later. Doesn't work so well in a dictator state that want's to maintain the image of being infallible. Works even less when that nation is already suffering with uprisings at home.
