Plane Crashed into the Sea

It is reported by The Times of India.

The reconnaissance aircraft Dornier Do 228 made a staff night flight when the airport manager in Goa lost contact with him. Nearest Indian Navy ships were immediately sent to the point of the incident. They have found the wreckages of the plane, and local fishermen reported the militaries that have picked up the pilot Nikila Joshi. He was taken to a military hospital.

There were 26 Do 228 that served in the Indian Navy until recently, which were used primarily as reconnaissance aircrafts.
