Dramatic underwater footage of retrieval operations for the plane that crashed in Masbate Bay on Saturday, killing DILG Secretary Jesse Robredo and two pilots, was made available on Wednesday.

The video shows at least three divers hovering around the fuselage of the plane, which was resting on the seabed upside down. They appear to be inspecting the plane. Later they secure harnesses to the fuselage, preparing it for lifting to the surface.

The body of Robredo was recovered on Tuesday, ahead of the retrieval operations for the plane.

As of Wednesday evening, the body of the plane's pilot, Jessup Bahinting, had also been recovered. Bahinting's Nepalese co-pilot, Kshitiz Chand, 22, was not in the fuselage.

As of posting, the fuselage had already been lifted nearer to the surface. It will eventually be turned over to the Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines for inspection and investigation.
