    One Marine rescued, 6 missing after planes collide off Japan

    One Marine rescued, 6 missing after planes collide off Japan

    Hope they can be rescued. An F-18 and KC-130 (refueler) go down.

    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 aircraft -- a KC-130 and an F/A-18 Hornet -- had launched from Marine Corps Air Station Iwakuni in southern Japan. The accident occurred at around 2 a.m. Thursday, local time (12 p.m. Wednesday ET).


    A U.S. official told Fox News that seven Marines were on board the two aircraft. Two aviators were on the F/A-18 Hornet, while five Marines were on the KC-130.


    It was not immediately clear which aircraft the rescued Marine was on.
    The Marines said in a statement that Japanese search and rescue aircraft responded and were aiding in the rescue effort. The statement added that the incident was under investigation.

    I spent some time, belly-down in the boom compartment while we were passing gas. It is beautiful to watch.
    Call your state legislators and insist they approve the Article V convention of States to propose amendments.
