Search under way after US military aircraft ‘mishap’ off Japan

US Marine aircraft suffer 'mishap' off Japanese coast, search-and-rescue underway

The Marine Corps has punished two aviators who flew their aircraft deliberately to draw a giant penis in the skies over California's Salton Sea. A large search and rescue operation is now underway.

One U.S. Marine was rescued, but six others were missing late Wednesday after two Marine Corps aircraft collided while refueling in mid-air during a regularly scheduled training exercise off the coast of Japan.

The Marine Corps offered little information in a statement about the incident. The base has seen serious expansion in recent years and is now home to fixed-wing aircraft belonging to CVW-5, USS Ronald Reagan's air wing, which moved from its long-established home at NAF Atsugi earlier in the year.

A total of seven personnel were believed to be on board the two aircraft, according to ABC News' Elizabeth McLaughlin.

The Marine Corps said Japanese search-and-rescue aircraft immediately responded to aid in recovery efforts.
