Missing Dornier flight navigator’s wife seeks PM’s intervention in search

he submarine operations continued for detection of acoustic signal from the sonar locator beacon (SLB) of the missing aircraft.

A total of eight ships and aircraft of the Indian coast guard are carrying out the search in the most probable area, even as aerial search is also being continued with the deployment of aircrafts.

Research vessel ‘Sagarnidhi’ arrived at the spot at 10 am on Monday, undertaking subsurface search and seabed profiling for ascertaining the position of the missing aircraft.

A team of scientists from the National Institute of Ocean Technology (NIOT) with expertise in deep ocean technology, is currently working on locating the missing Coast Guard Dornier plane with three crew and its cockpit voice recorder off the Tamil Nadu coast.

Coast Guard has already said that it has requested ROVs from agencies like NIOT and Reliance for support in locating the missing aircraft. To a question, Sharma denied claims in social networking sites on Sunday that the missing aircraft had been “spotted at a depth of about 850 metres in the sea” near Sirkali, off Chidambaram in Tamil Nadu.

INS ‘Sandhayak’, a naval survey ship, began operations in the Karaikkal-Cuddalore coastline on the intervening night of June 11-12 to locate the aircraft. It’s sonar equipment sent signals deep into the ocean and picked up some intermittent signals, likely to be from the Dornier plane, according to Sharma. The plane with a three-member crew went missing on June 8 after taking off from here and there was no contact with it after 9.23 PM on that day.
