2 US Marine planes with 7 crew crash off Japanese coast

The US Marine Corps says two of its aircraft were involved in a "mishap" off the coast of Japan, and a search-and-rescue operation is underway. Very few details have been made public after the initial USMC news release.
Rescue operations are underway off the coast of Japan for survivors of an aviation “mishap” during a training exercise, according to the USMC.

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. The aircraft had taken off from Marine Corps Air Station Iwakuni, Japan, before reportedly colliding in mid-air at around 2am local time on Thursday.

Japanese rescue crews have so far found two Marines out of seven. One of the servicemen is in a stable condition, the condition of the other is unknown, the Japanese government reported.
