Search Team Recover Body From Wreckage Of Plane Carrying Emiliano Sala

A body has been recovered from the wreckage of the plane which vanished over the English Channel carrying Emiliano Sala and pilot David Ibbotson barely three days after aircraft was found off Guernsey.

 

The body was taken to the Isle of Portland to be passed to the Dorset coroner. No details have been released concerning its identification.

 

The Air Accidents Investigation Branch (AAIB) said in a statement said that, “the operation was carried out in as dignified a way as possible and the families were kept informed of progress. Unfortunately, attempts to recover the aircraft wreckage were unsuccessful before poor weather conditions forced us to return the ROV to the ship.
