The Indian Air Force AN-32 plane with over 29 onboard went missing over the Bay of Bengal on Friday morning. The plane took off from Chennai at around 8:30 am and was headed to Port Blair in the Andamans.

The aircraft had 29 personnel, including six crew, on board.

A full-scale search and rescue operation was since launched with the Indian Navy diverting four ships to look for the missing aircraft. One IAF plane also joined the search operations.

TV reports say that the last contact with the plane was around 15 minutes after take-off. The Defence Ministry said it was a Courier aircraft.

The Navy launched surveillance aircraft to look for the missing plane in the Bay of Bengal. A Dornier aircraft was also sent and four ships, Karmukh, Gharial, Jyoti and Kuthar, were diverted to the region at full speed.
