After nearly 1 year, remains of 2nd pilot of crashed OV-10 found

Nearly a year after a Philippine Air Force North American Rockwell OV-10A-15-NH Bronco plane crashed into the waters off Palawan, the remains of its missing co-pilot were finally found. 
The finding of the skeletal remains of 1Lt. Abner Trust Nacion put to a close the search for the pilots of the crashed plane, RGMA Palawan's James Viernes reported on dzBB radio Monday.
RGMA's Viernes reported Nacion's skeletal remains were found at a site near where the remains of Maj. Jonathan Ybañez were located last December.
Nacion's remains were to be flown to the mortuary of the Philippine Air Force at Villamor Air Base.
Last December, the remains of Ybañez were retrieved following the crash of the North American Rockwell OV-10A-15-NH Bronco plane off Puerto Princesa on June 23 last year.
Ybañez and Nacion had gone missing after the Bronco plane crashed off Puerto Princesa City following a night proficiency test flight.
