The relatives of the 16 Greek soldiers who were killed by friendly fire during the Turkish invasion in 1974 while on board the NORATLAS, visited the Committee on Missing Persons laboratory, in Nicosia and were briefed on the work done once the remains were excavated and identified.

All were on board NORATLAS aircraft, which was buried near the now defunct Nicosia Airport. Noratlas was one of several Greek air force plans sent to Cyprus as reinforcements to fight the advancing Turkish troops.
