US warplanes crash off Japan coast, rescue under way

Search-and-rescue operations are underway after a pair of Marine Corps aircraft were involved in a "mishap" early Thursday off the coast of Japan.

The Marine Corps offered little information in a statement about the incident.

The aircraft were identified as a KC-130-a plane involved in aerial refueling-and an F/A-18 Hornet-a twin engine fighter jet.

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. It was not clear how many people were aboard either of the aircraft. The reports suggest the F/A-18 is a two-seat variant and five other crewmembers were on board the C-130.

The Marines' statement also indicates that Japanese planes have joined in the search efforts.

It was unclear if U.S. military officials were also assisting with the search.

In a statement, the Marine Corps said the planes had taken off from Marine Corps Air Station Iwakuni in southern Japan.
