Football player Sala’s missing plane found

This is the first picture of Emiliano Sala’s doomed plane lying 220ft down on the bed of the English Channel as it was revealed a victim has been found in the wreckage.

The haunting image of the wreckage was released by the Air Accident Investigation Branch today whose team also revealed that the body of either Sala or his pilot David Ibbotson is on board.

The operation to recover the doomed plane was cancelled today and could be hampered by days of poor weather.
It was found by a sea search vessel paid for by Sala’s family yesterday and a small submarine [ROV] with an HD camera confirmed it was the Piper Malibu that disappeared over the Channel Islands two weeks ago.

The body is also lying either in a seat or under the debris but he has not yet been identified.

The specialist search for the missing plane began off the coast of Guernsey yesterday morning and located the wreckage on the seabed just hours later.

Sala and pilot Ibbotson left Nantes in France for Cardiff on January 21 –  after the star signed for the Welsh Premier League team, disappearing over the Channel.
