Wreckage of IAF's missing AN-32 spotted in Arunachal Pradesh
NEW DELHI: The wreckage of the Antonov-32 that went missing eight days ago has finally been “located” in a remote mountainous area in Arunachal Pradesh, in a development that may eventually bring at least some closure to the families of the six officers and seven other personnel on board the ill-fated medium transport aircraft.
The IAF plans to “heli-drop” some Garud commandos, mountaineers and other personnel near the crash site, around 16-km north of Lipo, north-east of Tato in the West Siang district of Arunachal, after the wreckage was “spotted from the air” by Mi-17 helicopters on Tuesday afternoon. “Efforts are underway to establish the status of the 13 personnel on board,” said an officer.

Isro claims that soil quality and under ground mines can be analysed by earth observation satellites. how come they don't find wreckage? one week time to find wreakage in this age of tele communication is not acceptable.

I am sure that its easy to make statement but there might be REAL challenges. The entire world could not find the lost Malaysian plane so pretty sure that its not straight forward.

Malaysian plane didnt lost in mainland.
Accept the truth.
Please don’t jump to conclusions without a proper understanding of technical matters. IAF was not looking for a crashed aircraft on a flat plain. Remember this location is at an altitude of 12,000 feet on a montain slope with dense forests.

indians cannot manufacture a quality car, where can they try to make choppers or jets? they cannot even copy and produce like china. only good at barking and protesting for everything
INDIANS cars through TATA MOTORS / MAHINDRA are world class where as your beggar Pakistan cannot even make a cycle tyre nor can stand on own legs , living on other nation''s borrowed money shamelessly...

What''s the use of so many radars if you can''t track your planes. There should be a distress beacon in every plane.
Ground radars were operational. Thats why the search location could be localised. The slow pace of several previous governments is to blame for the poor state of IAF. It will take a while to recover
Ageing aircrafts were not replaced because all the money were stolen to make someone the 4th richest lady in the world.

India is way backward in defence tech. They are highly dependent on US and Russia which wont sell them the best products.. of course.

We took 8 days and still we are unable to extract dead bodies (if left any from wild animals). What kind of superpower we are? We can''t find our own plan on our on soil? What should we expect next?

@manmohan.. why they are not using the satellites then?
Manmohan Sreedhar• 12 hours ago
Please read and understand something about the subject before commenting negatively. Taking 8 days is perfectly understandable given this plane didnt have locational beacons or ELT. Secondly, the location is at 12,000 feet altitude on the side of a montain which is thickly wooded. The army estimates 2-3 trek on foot to get their because of terrain. Helicopter cannot land at the site. Tomorrow they are heli-dropping commandos. This is about the best possible in the circumstance

@manmohan are we living in stone age? Why doesn't an IAF aircraft have locational system? Even kaali peeli taxi have that today.
Manmohan Sreedha • 11 hours ago
If you understand the details of the terrain, you will appreciate that eight days is quite efficient.

The talented people want to move out of armed forces as the forces on the name of having selection boards give merit to academics rather than field service and experience... in our armed forces there are people who are tigers on the paper... as it is what is promoted.. These kind of failures and accidents will keep happening when merit is overshadowed by flattery..

Yeah all nepotism in the selection.These top chaddis should be court marshalled and well educated,honest,professional people should be inducted in IAF.
