Indian Military Plane Goes Missing Over Sea

Missing Plane Alert

India’s air force says it has lost contact with a transport plane carrying 29 people that has gone missing in the Bay of Bengal.
 
The AN-32 aircraft took off from Tambaram base in Chennai at 8.30am local time, and was due to touch down at the Port Blair military base in the Andaman and Nicobar islands at 11.20am.
 
The flight was supposed to last three hours but the control tower said it lost all contact with the aircraft about 15 minutes after take-off at a height of 21,000 feet.
 
The Defence Ministry tweeted: “Full scale search and rescue launched to look for an IAF AN-32 overdue at Port Blair since 1130 hrs. Max assets being deployed at earliest.”
 
Indian Navy spokesperson DK Sharma said: “As of now we will term it as overdue. A full scale search and rescue mission has been launched.”
 
According to the Defence Ministry the aircraft was last detected east of Chennai and made a left turn with a rapid loss of height. 
 
Details of the passengers on board have not yet been released, but the ministry confirmed there were 21 military personnel including six crew, and some family members of soldiers deployed on the islands.
 
The plane went through an upgrade last September, but this month had reported a pressure leak from the port door, a hydraulic leak and sluggish throttle.
 
Sky’s Neville Lazarus, in Delhi, said: “The plane was 150 miles into its route when it went missing and four surveillance planes, 12 ships and a submarine are involved in the rescue and search operation.
 
“The Indian government isn’t taking any chances and they’ve pushed into service all the fleet available to them for this.
 
“We have to bear in mind we are in the midst of the monsoon season with low visibility and also very high winds with rain all over this vast area of water that is the Bay of Bengal.”
 
The AN-32 is a Russian-made aircraft and is the main work horse of the Indian air force – they can fly for four hours without refuelling.
 
There are about 100 of these planes in the defence forces.
 
In one of the worst disasters involving an AN-32 in India, 20 people died and three civilians were burnt to death when a plane crashed near a New Delhi airport in 1999.

70 dead whales found washed up on a beach in southern Chile

20.07.16 Dead Whales In Chile

About 70 whales were found dead in the South of Chile in less than a year of the mass stranding of more than 330 cetaceans, discovered in another area of the Chilean Patagonia, the Servicio Nacional de Pesca (Sernapesca) reported.
 
Them animals were detected to some six hours of navigation from Puerto Chacabuco, region of Aysén, and by its size is ruled out that belong to the same species (Sei) of them more than 300 whales stranded to purposes of 2015.
 
“They are smaller than we saw last time, around 60 to 70 copies, which are much more accessible”, which will allow an inspection process in the coming days, said the director of Sernapesca, José Miguel Burgos.
 
Death would date more than two months, said the authorities.
 
The corpses are “still integers, so we are optimistic for necropsies, the adequate taking of samples” to determine the hypothesis of the stranding.
 
In the first mass stranding – due to the precariousness of the samples obtained, by the age of the remains at the time of its discovery – it was complex to determine an exact cause, being the most likely cause of death red tide.
 
In the new stranding “the first thing we have to address ourselves is if there is human intervention or not”, said Burgos.
