MiG-29K crash: After 11 days, wreckage and a body found in Arabian Sea

Mumbai: After 11 days of hectic search and rescue operations, the Indian Navy has recovered the wreckage of the ill-fated MiG-29K aircraft along with a body.

"Mortal remains of a human body have been recovered in the vicinity of the wreckage site. The samples are being sent for DNA testing for confirmation of identity," said a defence spokesperson here on Monday evening.

The trainer aircraft along with Commander Nishant Singh and a co-pilot, which took off from the INS Vikramaditya, vanished off Goa on Nov. 26.

While the co-pilot was saved, Commander Singh has been missing since, for whom massive operations were launched by Indian Navy ships and aircraft, with over 270 hours of sorties in the Arabian Sea.

An underwater search around the crash site including extensive dives by saturation divers and continuous night search using HD cameras were undertaken over the past 10 days, said the official.

All sections of the aircraft wreckage including ejection seats have bene accounted for using side scan sonar and HD cameras, while the FDR/CVR along with other important materials have been recovered and sent for analysis.
