The Coast Guard had on Monday recovered the body of one of the two pilots who were missing since the helicopter crashed into the Arabian sea off the Mumbai Coast last week.

The Coast Guard also found wreckage, including cockpit, of the 14-seater VTPWF Dauphin aircraft, five days after the mishap occurred on November 4.

He said the recovery of other parts of the chopper was in progress.

The 2001-make Pawan Hans helicopter crashed during night landing practice after it had taken off from the ONGC installation on Wednesday night.

The door of the aircraft was sighted by the Navy and Coast Guard soon after it had crashed into the sea.
