Not Again! ...an Indian Airforce Plane Disappears from Radar

Friday morning reports reaching aksu360 newsdesk indicate that Indian air-force Friday lost contact with a transport plane carrying 29 people to islands in the Bay of Bengal, according to Indian defence ministry.

The AN-32 aircraft took off from the southern city of Chennai at 8.30 a.m. and was flying over the bay to the city of Port Blair in the Andaman and Nicobar islands, said Nitin Wakanker a spokesman for India's defense ministry.
