Three People Missing in US Navy Airplane Crash into the Philippine Sea

A Navy aircraft of the United States crashed on Wednesday afternoon in to the Pacific Ocean of southeast of Okinawa, which carried 11 crew and passengers and left three people missing, as reported by the United States Navy and the Defense Ministry of Japan. Eight others were rescued shortly after the crash. The cause wasn't clear and the crash was being investigated, the Navy said.

The Reagan was participating in a joint exercise with Japan's navy when the plane crashed. The COD was en route from Marine Corps Air Station (MCAS) Iwakuni to the aircraft carrier USS Ronald Reagan (CVN-76) operating in the Philippine Sea. The Reagan and her Carrier Strike Group 5 are now operating with the Japanese Maritime Self-Defense Force (JMSDF) Helicopter Carrier JS Kaga (DDH 184) and Hatakaze-class destroyer JS Shimakaze (DDG 172).

"A full search mission is underway", U.S. Navy Secretary Richard V. Spencer said during a visit to Manama, Bahrain. Searching through the night, several ships and aircraft covered more than 320 nautical miles as of this morning.

President Trump said in a tweet: "We are monitoring the situation. Prayers for all involved", Trump wrote on Twitter.

Four other US ships in the USA 7th Fleet have been involved in collisions in Asian waters since January, including two that resulted in fatalities.

Two months earlier, in June, the USS Fitzgerald smashed into a cargo ship off the coast of Japan, killing seven.

The USS John S. McCain and an oil tanker collided near Singapore in August, leaving 10 USA sailors dead.

The navy has concluded that the collisions were avoidable and resulted from widespread failures by the crews and commanders, who did not quickly recognise and respond to unfolding emergencies.
