Sri Lanka Navy said that it has located the wreckage of the ‘Lion Air’ domestic passenger plane, that was shot down by the LTTE some fourteen years ago.

“On the request of the Terrorists Investigation Division (TID) Navy surveyed the sea bed off the Iranativu Island in the northern sea and located some wreckages of a plane,” Navy Spokesman Kosala Warnakulasuriya said.  

The ill-fated Lion Air 602 took off from Pallali airport on 29 September 1998, carrying 48 passengers, 6 crew members and two Ukrainian pilots to Ratmalana and disappeared from the radar screen just after ten minutes leaving a big mystery yet to be unfolded in fully.

    Tragedy that will be remembered I knew one of the crew member who lost her life. Her family still waiting for their daughter plight. At least something to console their grievance.

    LTTE didn't shoot anybody, They didn't blast buses & trains full of passengers, didn't do suicidal missions, deserve to be given the Nobel Peace Prize !
