Investigators planning 'underwater operation' for wreck of Emiliano Sala plane

Body found in wreckage of plane carrying missing footballer Emiliano Sala

"You have to see whether you can lift the plane without disturbing the body, and also making sure that you're picking it all up", he said.

Speaking on Monday, he said: "There's a much greater chance they [the Sala family] will get answers if [the plane is] recovered".

The body is yet to be confirmed as being that of the missing Cardiff City FC footballer or the small plane's pilot.

"We were told by the AAIB that they didn't feel that there was much to be gained".

The plane wreckage was found on Sunday.

David Mearns, who located the wreck in the English Channel, previously said it was "imperative" to recover the plane.

Mr Mearns, who has spearheaded around 20 historic wreck discoveries including one of Britain's most famous battleships the HMS Hood, offered his services to the Sala family for free and has been in constant contact with them. "I hope both bodies are on there". It would be a miracle.

Sala's bereft father Horacio, who has not joined his ex-wife, son and daughter in Britain, told reporters in the Argentinian town of Progreso: "I can not believe it. this is a dream. a bad dream".

More than £300,000 was raised through a GoFundMe page in order to launch the privately-funded search for Sala's aircraft.

The disappearance of Emiliano Sala is still being discussed around the world after his plane went missing en route from Nantes to Cardiff.

According to the statement made by the Air Accidents Investigation Branch as quoted by Metro news, a body has been sighted in the wreckage of the aircraft underwater.

An AAIB spokesman said: "Tragically, in video footage from the ROV, one occupant is visible amidst the wreckage". The AAIB is now considering the next steps, in consultation with the families of the pilot, passenger and police.

An investigation has now began to know if the pilot had commercial flying qualifications.

It was found on the seabed of the English Channel on Sunday night - 13 days after it disappeared on a flight from Nantes to Cardiff.

No timeframe has been set to decide whether to recover the wreck of the plane carrying Emiliano Sala and David Ibbotson, investigators have said.
