Thursday, 6 December 2018 17:54 WIB | GLOBAL |Global

Search-and-rescue efforts are under way after two U.S. military aircraft collided in midair, crashing into the Pacific Ocean about 200 miles off the coast of Japan early Thursday, the U.S. Marine Corps said.

At least two Marines have been rescued by the Japanese Maritime Self-Defense Force. Five others are still missing. There were five crew members on the KC-130 tanker aircraft and two on the F/A-18 fighter jet.

The planes œhad launched from Marine Corps Air Station Iwakuni and were conducting regularly scheduled training when the mishap occurred, a statement issued by the Marines said. œThe circumstances of the mishap are currently under investigation.

The U.S. military has about 50,000 troops stationed in Japan.
