C & C Technologies, Inc. in co-operation with SEA Corporation, the Italian and Venezuelan Authorities, and Mr. Luca Missoni, confirm that two aircraft lost off the archipelago of Los Roques, Venezuela have been located and positively identified. 

Search operations were conducted by the, R/V Sea Scout, C & C’s purpose designed 134-foot aluminum hulled oceanographic catamaran vessel equipped with an Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (AUV).  The AUV’s sensor suite includes a Dual Frequency Chirp Side Scan Sonar, Chirp Subbottom Profiler, Multibeam Bathymetry and Imagery System, and a Camera Mosaicking System. 

The first aircraft, LET L-410 aircraft (registration number YV-2081) found was lost in 2008 south of the archipelago of Los Roques, Venezuela, carrying fourteen passengers and crew from Caracas, Venezuela to Los Roques.

The second missing  aircraft, BN2 Islander aircraft (registration number YV-2615) to be located was lost north of the island on January 4, 2013 carrying six passengers and crew, including fashion design CEO Vittoio Missoni and his wife Maurizia Castiglioni.
