Itanagar: In one of the most extensive search efforts undertaken by the Indian Air Force (IAF), helicopters, transport aircraft, UAVs and other sensors have been involved to look for any clues regarding the ill-fated AN-32 aircraft that went missing from Arunachal Pradesh on Monday afternoon.
In a latest tweet, the IAF said that “all electronic, radar, optical & infrared sensors including satellites are being employed to scan the area for any probable clues”.
This was after the Indian Navy’s P-8i aircraft undertook a search missing from Arakonnam on Friday morning.
Army search teams have been in the area for over two days, going through thick forests to locate the aircraft, said the IAF. “Senior Air Staff Officer of Eastern Air Command is coordinating and supervising search operations at Along,” it tweeted.
