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.
Their bodies, found in the cockpit of the plane, were taken to Jeju National University Hospital, local media reports said.
There has been speculation of a possible insurance scam because one of the two men bought life insurance worth more than $2.8 million, but the bereaved families have dismissed it.
