With the help of the three forces, a massive search operation was conducted for eight days. During this time MI-17 helicopter had seen debris of aircraft in the forest of Arunachal.

Air Force tried to trace the aircraft through the Sukhoi-30, C 130J Super Hercules, P8I aircraft, drones and satellites. In this mission, the Navy, Army, intelligence agencies, ITBP and police personnel were engaged in addition to the IAF. Detective planes obtained footage of several hours of imaging and kept Navy’s reconnaissance plane P8I in the search operation. Satellite and unmanned vehicles also have been explored.
In this area, there was a lot of turbulence, hence flying difficult, in
many research, a lot of atmospheric stir in this area of Arunachal appeared. When winds of 140 kmph are exposed to the valleys, such situations make the flight difficult. It is extremely difficult to find the missing planes as far as the forest and population are not far away. It takes decades in several decades.
Even before the debris of the 75-year-old aircraft was found in Arunachal, many times the debris of such airliners has been found on Arunachal hills, which had disappeared during World War II. In February this year, a debris of a missing plane was found in the rowing district of East Arunachal Pradesh for 75 years. This was the aircraft of the American Air Force, which flew to Assam to help fight against the Japanese in the Second World War.
