Search for Mirage 2000-5 debris delayed by bad weather

Bad weather conditions prevailing in the area did not allow the search and retrieval of debris from the crash of the Mirage 2000-5 military aircraft that crashed into the sea nine miles from the island of Skyros on April 12, killing the pilot.

Strong winds of up to 8 on the Beaufort scale were blowing in the area and the oceanographic vessel of the Hellenic Centre for Marine Research, which has already docked at the port of Skyros, is waiting for the winds to die down in order to start the operation to locate and raise wreckage from aircraft, from the area where the signal from its flight recorder was detected after the crash.
