One dead, five missing
TOKYO: One of two crew members recovered after two US warplanes crashed off Japan’s coast on Thursday is dead and five others remain missing.
The US Marine Corps said the other recovered crew member was in fair condition. Both were in an F/A-18 Hornet fighter jet that collided with a KC-130 Hercules during a training exercise at 2am. The five missing crew were in the KC-130. The two planes were involved in routine training, including aerial refuelling, but the cause of the collision is still not known.
