Emiliano Sala: Body recovered from plane wreckage

The mission to recover the body, which has not yet been identified, began on Tuesday evening, just about three weeks after the plane crashed.

However, the wreckage of the plane has not been recovered and the operation has been brought to a close due to poor weather conditions.

In a statement, the AAIB said:

“Following extensive visual examination of the accident site using the remotely operated vehicle (ROV), it was decided to attempt recovery operations.

“In challenging conditions, the AAIB and its specialist contractors successfully recovered the body previously seen amidst the wreckage. The operation was carried out in as dignified a way as possible and the families were kept informed of progress.”
