NGHE AN - The body of the second pilot on board the missing fighter jet Su-30MK2, Senior Lieutenant Colonel Trần Quang Khải, was found late yesterday afternoon in the area of Hon Mat, an islet 40 nautical miles off the coast of the central province of Nghe An.

The fighter jet Su-30MK2, with two pilots on board, went missing on Tuesday during a training session off the coast of Nghệ An. Khải was deputy head and chief of staff of Regiment 923.

Major Nguyễn Hữu Cường, one of the two pilots, was rescued on Wednesday.
