US Marine aircraft suffer 'mishap' off Japanese coast, search-and-rescue underway

06 Декабря 2018

The Marine Corps has punished two aviators who flew their aircraft deliberately to draw a giant penis in the skies over California's Salton Sea.

Search and rescue operations were underway following a "mishap".

The last major USA military aircraft incident occurred in May when an Air National Guard C-130 cargo plane crashed outside Savannah, killing all nine personnel on board. "Japanese search and rescue aircraft immediately responded to aid in recovery".

Reports citing Marines officials indicate the incident involved a KC-130 refueling aircraft and a F/A-18 fighter jet, carrying 7 personnel in total.

Further details about the incident were not immediately released.

A spokesman for Japan's Self-Defense Forces said that one of the airmen had been rescued but the immediate fate of the remaining crew members was unclear.

The statement concluded by saying that "the investigation is ongoing" and "no other information is yet available".

UPDATE: This story was updated at 5:45 P.M. on December 5 after one of the missing Marines was found alive.
