Almost 10 months after an Indian Air Force MiG-29 plane went missing in the mountains of Lahual-Spiti in Himachal Pradesh, the IAF search team has found wreckage of the MiG-29, beside some body parts, supposedly of the missing pilot.
Reports from Keylong said the IAF search team found a toe and backbone, believed to be of pilot squadron leader D S Tomar. The recovered body parts and wreckage will be flown to Delhi, and Western Air Command has been requested to send a helicopter to the base camp Thirot, reports said.
Extensive search by IAF and Ladakh scouts in October 2011 had failed to trace the body of the pilot even after his family members announced a reward for any clues on the wreckage and missing pilot. The search was later abandoned because of snowfall and hostile weather conditions.
The ill-fated MiG-29 crashed into a mountain (at 16,000 ft) in Chokhang ranges on October 18, 2011 during a night-long training operation.
