UPDATE October 23, 2013: The official release of the report confirmed the conclusions in what already leaked out. Much to blame are the unexperienced air traffic controllers in Kiruna and Stockholm, and the Norwegian Air Force crew training and crew documentation.

The Royal Norwegian Air Force C-130J Hercules crash against Sweden’s highest mountain on March 15th, 2012, was mainly caused by interpretation failures of the instruments on board by the crew, a lack of training or preparation by the Norwegian Air Force and the lack of guidance by Swedish air traffic controllers.
