Wreckage of the missing AN-32 aircraft was found in Arunachal 8 days after the flight was missing. The jet was carrying 13 passengers from Assam’s Jorhat to a remote base in Arunachal Pradesh when it went missing around 12:25 pm on June 3, half an hour after it took off.
The IAF has confirmed that wreckage of the missing AN-32 was spotted north of Lipo in Arunachal Pradesh. The Tweet from IAF said, “The wreckage of the missing #An32 was spotted today 16 Kms North of Lipo, North East of Tato at an approximate elevation of 12000 ft by the #IAF Mi-17 Helicopter undertaking search in the expanded search zone.”
According to news agency ANI, location of parts of the aircraft is 15-20 kilometers north of the flight path of the AN-32 aircraft in Arunachal Pradesh. However, there is no mention of the 13 personnel who were travelling in the jet. Search operations have been going on in the area ever since the IAF jet went missing last week.
