Seoul, Oct 31 (IANS) The bodies of the two South Korean pilots of a crashed cargo plane were found Sunday, three months after the accident, Xinhua reported.

Choi Sang-gi, 52, and Lee Jeong-wung, 43, were on the Boeing 747 cargo plane when the Asiana Airlines plane crashed into waters, about 100 km west of Jeju Island. The plane was headed to Shanghai.
