Marine rescued after 2 military aircraft crash off coast of Japan”

A F-18 with two people on board and a KC-130 with five on board were involved in the incident about 200 miles off Iwakuni, Japan.

"Search and rescue operations continue for U.S. Marine aircraft that were involved in a mishap off of the coast of Japan around 2:00 a.m. December 6.", a Marine Corps news release said.

The Marine Corps offered little information in a statement about the incident. "The aviators retained their wings and will continue service to their country as valued members of 3rd Marine Aircraft Wing", he said. Search and rescue operations were underway at the scene.

The planes "were conducting regularly scheduled training when the mishap occurred", the statement said.

The Marines said in a statement that Japanese search and rescue aircraft responded and were aiding in the rescue effort.

The U.S. Marine Corps said Thursday an FA-18 fighter and a KC-130 tanker aircraft were involved "a mishap" off the Japanese coast early Thursday.

USA media say the two planes crashed during midair refuelling but this has not been officially confirmed.
