Greek Mirage pulled from under the water

The Greek government has retrieved from under the water a Miarge 2000 fighter jet that fell into the Aegean Sea a fortnight ago. The machine was lying at a depth of 75 metres. The Greek Ministry of Defence released some photos of the recovery of the fighter jet.

The plane, along with three other aircraft, was on a practice flight over the Aegean Sea. The exercise took place on 9 June, near the Turkish coast. For unknown reasons, the engine stopped during the flight. The two-man crew ejected safely.

The Mirage fell into the water near the island of Samos. As it turned out, the aircraft sustained almost no damage during the launch. The wreck, at a depth of 75 metres, was quickly located by the military. It was considered possible and advisable to raise it. First, divers went down to the machine and roped it off. Then the wreck, after being towed into shallower water, was finally raised with the help of local fishermen.

We invite you to watch gallery from the rescue of the fighter jet.
