Plane Carrying 11 Crew And Passengers Crashes In Philippine Sea


We're also tracking this news this morning. A U.S. Navy aircraft crashed off the coast of Japan. It was carrying 11 people. And we are now told that eight have been found alive.


This was a transporter plane. It was supposed to land on the USS Ronald Reagan aircraft carrier. The flight was part of exercises being conducted with Japan's maritime self-defense force in the midst of rising tensions with North Korea. We will have more on this story as it develops this morning. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
