Air Self-Defense Force F-35A fighter jet disappears from radar over Pacific

Quote:
One of the first 13 F-35A stealth jet fighters deployed in Japan went missing Tuesday over the Pacific Ocean off Aomori Prefecture during nighttime flight training, the Air Self-Defense Force said.

The ASDF’s radar lost track of the jet at 7:27 p.m. when it was about 135 km east of Misawa Air Base in the prefecture.

As of late Tuesday, the ASDF could not confirm whether or not the male pilot had ejected from the cockpit.

The F-35A in question was engaging in anti-fighter battle training with three other F-35A jets.

Airplanes, helicopters and warships of the Self-Defense Forces were searching for the jet and pilot as of 10:00 p.m. Tuesday.

Japanese air force stealth fighter jet crashes in Pacific

TOKYO — A Japanese air force F-35 stealth fighter crashed in the Pacific Ocean during a night training flight and parts of the jet were recovered, the defense ministry said Wednesday.

The pilot is still missing. The F-35A stealth jet disappeared from radar while flying off the eastern coast of Aomori. Parts of the jet were found late Tuesday, the Air Self-Defense Force said.

It went missing about half an hour after taking off from the Misawa air base with three other F-35As.

Japan-US search finds debris of crashed F-35 flight recorder

Defense Minister Takeshi Iwaya said Tuesday that the debris of a flight data recorder from a crashed Japanese Air Self-Defense Force F-35A had been recovered from the Pacific seabed but the storage medium was missing.

The U.S.-chartered deep sea search vessel Van Gogh had retrieved the heavily damaged flight recorder and a piece from the canopy since Friday, Iwaya told a press conference.

The defense minister said the ASDF will continue its operation with U.S. military support to recover the debris of the cutting-edge single-seat stealth jet developed by U.S. defense company Lockheed Martin Corp. The aircraft's pilot remains missing.
