The corpse that was found from the crashed plane on Thursday has proved to be the body of the Argentine Emiliano Sala, Emiliano Sala was on the way to Cardiff on January 21, who had presented the Argentine attacker two days earlier. However, he wanted to return to Nantes in France to say goodbye to his old teammates.

It was returning from this farewell ceremony that Emiliano Salas aircraft, which was flown by pilot David Ibbotson, crashed into the English Channel. The search for the aircraft initially led to its being found at the bottom of the English Channel. Early Thursday morning, the search team recovered a single corpse from the crashed plane. The one corpse, which on Thursday was the mountain from the crashed plane, has now turned out to be Emiliano Sala. However, the case of the Argentine attacker, who was only 28 years old, is not completely over yet. The search team thus lacks to find the pilot David Ibbotson.
