Emiliano Sala:- Cushions 'From Missing Plane' Found
#1
An underwater search for footballer Emiliano Sala’s plane will take
place after cushions were found on a beach.
They were discovered near Surtainville on France’s Cotentin
Peninsula, on Monday, by French authorities.
Following this, the Air Accidents Investigation Branch (AAIB) has
identified an area of four square nautical miles for a search.
The plane disappeared with Sala, 28, and pilot David Ibbotson,
from Crowle, North Lincolnshire, on board last week.
Due to weather and sea conditions, an underwater search is not
expected to start until the end of the week and will take up to three
days, an AAIB spokesman said.
It will use sonar equipment to locate any wreckage on the sea
bed.
French safety authorities found the two seat cushions, which
preliminary examinations suggested were likely from the missing
aircraft.
Following this, detailed assessments of the flight path and last
known radar position were carried out, which identified the search
area.
Through the Ministry of Defence's salvage and marine operations
team, a special survey vessel has now been commissioned to
look for wreckage.
If it is found, a remotely operated vehicle will be sent down to
examine it.
Argentinian Sala signed for Cardiff City and was travelling from
Nantes, where he previously played, when the flight was lost over
the English channel.
An official search for it was called off with Guernsey officials
saying there was little chance those on board survived, however,
more than £290,000 was raised for a private search to continue.
"We are aware that a privately operated search is also being
conducted in the area," an AAIB statement said.
"And we are liaising closely with those involved to maximise the
chance of locating any wreckage and ensure a safe search
operation."
Marine scientist David Mearns, who is spearheading the private
search and is a Sala family spokesman, tweeted that both vessels
will work together as "safely, completely and efficiently as
possible".
