Here is a timeline of key events.

Emiliano Sala signs for Cardiff City from French club Nantes for £15 million.
Pilot David Ibbotson, 59, flies him from Cardiff to Nantes so he can say goodbye to his former teammates and collect his belongings.

Their return flight takes off from Nantes at 7.15pm. An air and sea search is launched at 8.50pm after the plane disappears from radar over the Channel.

After more than 24 hours of continuous searching – including by three planes, five helicopters and two lifeboats – the search is officially called off.
