A friend of the British billionaire trapped inside a submarine missing on a voyage to the Titanic wreck has revealed the last text he received from him.
Retired Nasa astronaut Colonel Terry Virts said Hamish Harding had messaged him to say: ‘Hey, we’re headed out tomorrow, it looks good, the weather’s been bad so they’ve been waiting for this.’
As rescue teams continued the search for the submersible vessel which has five people onboard, Colonel Virts added that he and his friend ‘don’t really talk about risks’.
Mr. Harding is chairman of private plane firm Action Aviation, which said he is one of the mission specialists on the OceanGate Expeditions vessel reported overdue on Sunday evening about 435 miles south of St John’s, Newfoundland, Canada.
A major search and rescue operation, which is being led by the US Coast Guard and involves military aircraft 900 miles east of Cape Cod, continued this morning.
