"The 34 years of a plane that was lost since yesterday, when he departed from the airfield of Coronel Olmedo and never landed in the Cordovan city of Villa Dolores, appeared alive today in Potrero Garay, in the Calamuchita Valley.
The pilot, who was identified as Mariano Bourgigne, was found alive. At 9.30 yesterday had taken off from the airfield Coronel Olmedo aboard a plane mark PA 22, registration LV-IAZ, blue, with a yellow stripe, bound for Villa Dolores.
Before the loss, the search and rescue Air Force, in conjunction with the Ministry of Government of Cordoba, began tracking the plane and its pilot.
After a couple of hours, the man was found without serious injuries and was later transferred to a medical facility.
As he knew, the aircraft suffered a technical malfunction, so Bourgigne had to make an emergency landing in Potrero de Garay, in the Calamuchita Valley.
