Experts are examining video footage of the An-2 airplane sunken to the Baltic seafloor and, with proper preparations completed, lifting operations may be started on Friday, says Algimantas Rasčius, CEO of the state-run company Oro Navigacija (Air Navigation).
A team of specialists started inspecting the sunken An-2 plane that crashed on May 16 with two pilots aboard while flying over the Baltic Sea from Sweden to Lithuania. The inspection results are due on Tuesday afternoon, says Edvinas Ivanauskas, director of the firm Mammoet Baltic which is carrying out the operation.
