BAF plane missing, entered Indian airspace?
Dhaka: A Bangladeshi Air Force plane, flown by a cadet pilot, has gone missing this evening and is believed to have crossed into neighbouring West Bengal.
Though initially the flight was feared to have crashed, officials here believe the aircraft had crossed into the Indian air space.
"According to initial reports, the pilot apparently lost direction and entered the Indian skyline after it took off from an airbase in Jessore (frontier)," a senior police official, on condition of anonymity said.
The Air Force or the Inter-Services Public Relation (ISPR) are yet to issue any statement but the official said "our information says the pilot is safe".
The official, however, did not comment whether the plane crash-landed or had a normal landing.
