The wreckage of the Sukhoi-30 fighter aircraft with two pilots, that had gone missing a few days back after taking off from Tezpur airbase, has been found, IAF sources said on Friday.

"Wreckage has been found close to the last known position of the aircraft. As of now weather is bad and the place has dense foliage," an IAF official said.

There was no information on the two pilots that were flying the jet.

The Su-30 had taken off from the IAF Tezpur air base, located about 172 km from the India-China border in Arunachal Pradesh around 9.30 a.m. on a routine training mission on May 23.

It lost radar and radio contact with the controlling station around 11.10 a.m. near Arunachal Pradesh''s Doulasang area, adjoining China, 60 km north of Tezpur.

Tezpur has one of the three IAF air bases in the country that host the Sukhois.

Last year, a Sukhoi-30MKI crashed near Nagaon town of Assam during a routine sortie. While the two pilots ejected safely, some locals suffered splinter injuries in the crash.
