Thirteen mountaineers from the IAF and the Indian Army along with two civilian mountaineers had on Wednesday been air-dropped near the crash site to establish the status of the 13 occupants of the AN-32. The IAF had spotted the wreckage of the missing aircraft near Lipo in Arunachal Pradesh on Tuesday at an approximate elevation of 12,000 feet with the help of an IAF Mi-17 helicopter.

As per the images of the site in Arunachal Pradesh where the aircraft crashed shows how close the plane was to cross the hill but could not do so, probably due to the blockage of view due to clouds.
