Eight rescued from US Navy aircraft that crashed into sea near Japan

The ship, which is in the Philippine Sea, is conducting search and rescue operations, the Japan-based USA 7th Fleet said in a statement.

Three people are still missing after a U.S. Navy plane crashed in the Philippine Sea en route to the aircraft carrier USS Ronald Reagan. Eight of the 11 have been rescued and are in good condition, the Navy said.

The crash occurred at approximately 2:45 p.m. local time on Wednesday, the Navy said.

The C2-A is assigned to the "Providers" of Fleet Logistics Support Squadron Three Zero, Detachment Five, forward deployed in NAF Atsugi, Japan, the Navy said. It was taking part in an ongoing joint U.S. -Japan naval exercise.

"A United States Navy aircraft carrying 11 crew and passengers crashed into the ocean southeast of Okinawa", a statement from the Navy said.

The 7th Fleet has been carrying out exercises linked to the recent rise in tensions with North Korea.

The month before, the guided-missile cruiser USS Lake Champlain collided with a South Korean fishing vessel off the Korean Peninsula and the guided-missile cruiser USS Antietam ran aground in Tokyo Bay in January.

The Nov. 16-26 joint exercise in waters off Okinawa has been described by the Navy as the "premier training event" between the USA and Japanese navies, created to increase defensive readiness and interoperability in air and sea operations.

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

The commander of the 7th Fleet was removed of his command in late August following the USS John S. McCain accident.
