Russia's Pacific Fleet sends an Il-38 plane to search for the missing crewmembers from the Sinegorye ship
Russia's Pacific Fleet sends an Il-38 plane to search for the missing crewmembers from the Sinegorye ship that sank in the Sea of Japan. The Il-38 can fly without refueling for eight hours. The plane was on standby at the Pacific Fleet airfield near Nakhodka, waiting for permission asked through diplomatic channels to fly over North Korea's waters, the fleet press service said on Friday morning, Moscow time. The fleet also sent its rescue ship Mashuk to the region. The vessel is expected to reach the Sinegorye shipwreck area on Saturday. The rescue vessel Suvorovets of the Dalryba fishing company is sent from the Sea of Okhotsk to the Sea of Japan also to participate in the search for the five missing sailors. The Suvorovets is expected to come to the area on Sunday, October 29. At present, only the Russian vessel Yuri Orlenko is searching for the sailors in North Korea’s waters where the five crewmembers from the Sinegorye supposedly could be taken by the current. Searching for the Russian sailors is also continuing in South Korea's waters, the head of the Vladivostok sea rescue coordination centre, Konstantin Sviridov, said. Seven South Korean patrol ships and two helicopters of the country participate in the operation. The Sinegorye sank about 80 miles off South Korea on October 23. Eleven of the 18 crewmembers are rescued. Two were found dead, and five are missing.
