Indian aircraft brave inclement weather yet search ends without gains.
Will fly again shortly as a part of task force.
Indian aircraft log over 2500 nautical miles across Southern Indian ocean.
IAF’s C130J Hercules flew from SUBANG for over 900 nautical miles and searched in S. Indian ocean for 5hours.
Indian Navy’s P8I aircraft flew from Subang for over 1350 nautical miles and searched despite inclement weather.
SEARCH HAS NOT REVEALED ANYTHING HOWEVER.
Indian aircraft are a part of international search force which includes China, South Korea, Japan & US.
ADDITIONALLY, India has deployed 7 ships & 5 aircraft in Bay of Bengal region and the Andaman sea for search ops as these areas are also under the arc of suspicion.
