London, Feb. 7, 2019 (Reuters/NNN) A body has been recovered from the wreckage of the plane that was carrying Argentina–born professional football player Emiliano Sala and pilot David Ibbotson.
The wreckage was found on Sunday following a privately-funded underwater search of the English Channel where the plane crashed into.
The body was “successfully recovered” but attempts to recover the aircraft wreckage were unsuccessful, the AAIB said in a statement.
He and the pilot are believed to have died as the single-engined Piper Malibu aircraft crashed into the sea.(Reuters/NNN)
