Pax on board:
The aircraft was on its way from Iwakuni Airbase to the USS Ronald Reagan (CVN-76) cruising in the Philippines Sea on behalf of the 7th Fleet. It is believed that while approaching the supercarrier, the airplane stalled and crashed into the sea, apparently following an engine failure. Eight crew members were rescued while three are still missing two days after the accident.
