Story Text: The bodies of 28 Belgian victims who died when a school party ski trip's bus slammed into the wall of a Swiss Alpine tunnel were returned to Brussels on Friday (March 16) onboard two military transport planes.
A Swiss police guard of honour stood to attention and the grey Transall planes lumbered their way into position on the runway and took off over a snow-covered mountain against blue skies.
Swiss police say they still do not know what caused the crash, which killed 22 children and six adults.
