Res­cue ships had by night­fall picked up the bodies of 60 of the 65 peo­ple aboard a Bri­tish Comet jet air­liner which crashed into the Mediter­ranean off the Turk­ish coast early yes­ter­day. The bodies were taken on board Greek, Hun­gar­ian and Turk­ish ships af­ter a day-long search of the area where the Lon­don-Cyprus plane went down. King Con­stan­tine flew from Athens to sur­vey the crash scene from a Greek Royal Air Force he­li­copter. There were 20 Bri­tish pas­sen­gers aboard.
