The Piper Malibu aircraft was found on the seabed of the English Channel on Sunday morning .
The Piper Malibu aircraft. officials said they will not be bringing the entire wreckage to the surface. It remains more than 200 feet below water and is 21 miles off the coast of Guernsey in the English Channel as poor weather conditions stopped efforts to recover it. The search operation has now ceased.
Although it was not possible to recover the aircraft, the extensive video record captured by the ROV is expected to provide valuable evidence for our safety investigation.
The weather forecast is poor for the foreseeable future and so the difficult decision was taken to bring the overall operation to a close.
