Investigators keen on recovering wreckage at Emiliano Salad crash point.



The light aircraft which disappeared carrying the Argentina player from France to Wales has been found at the bottom of the English Channel.

They had gone missing while travelling from Nantes to Cardiff on January 21.

Authorities conducting an ongoing investigation into the disappearance of a plane carrying Emiliano Sala remain determined to recover the wreckage from the English Channel.

The AAIB is now looking to bring the plane to the surface in an effort to offer closure to the distraught families of those involved.

Concerns have been raised regarding the costs of such a towing operation, but every effort will be made by French and British search teams to see the process through.

Shipwreck hunter David Mearns told L’Equipe: “It’s a delicate but feasible operation.


“We have already recovered aircraft in much deeper waters [the aircraft is 67 m deep]. What I feel is that it needs to be done.

For me, it makes no sense to get into this research, to find the plane, which could help to find clues about what happened, and give up. I do not think it’s fair to take that responsibility.

“They need time, now that there is no hope to find them alive.


“Many people have made donations, more than 5,000. We think it is necessary for them to know in all transparency what happened.”

Emotional tributes have been paid to Sala by Nantes and Cardiff in their most recent outings.

The 28-year-old had been due to link up with the Bluebirds as the club’s record signing during the January transfer window.

Russian: President Putin eases access to citizenship for east Ukraine residents.

Russian President Vladimir Putin has signed an order simplifying the procedure for obtaining a Russian passport for residents of the rebel-controlled Donetsk and Luhansk regions of eastern Ukraine, the Kremlin said on Wednesday.

Separatist rebellions broke out against Ukrainian rule in both regions in 2014. Moscow provided military help for the separatists, according to evidence gathered by Reuters, though Russian officials have denied providing material support.

Large swathes of the two regions are now under the de facto control of the Moscow-backed rebels, while Kiev says it is determined to re-assert its control, a position backed by most Western countries.

There was no immediate reaction from Kiev to Putin’s order. Ukrainian officials are likely to react angrily to any indication Moscow is drawing the rebel regions closer into its own orbit.
