A C-2 Greyhound, carrying 11 passengers and crew to the USS Ronald Reagan crashed off Okinawa. The carrier is conducting search and rescue operations. The C-2 should float at least long enough for people to get off in the event of a water landing due to the shape of the fuselage.

From the sounds of the statement by the Navy, the aircraft ditched and at least some of the people on board got off. One statement said that personnel recovery is underway and they will be evaluated, while another said 3-4 may be missing.

It would appear that 8 have been rescued, and three are missing, but that hasn't been confirmed by the Navy.

Passengers? That makes it sound like the carrier is a vacation cruise ship. Weren't they military personnel? Wasn't the Ron Reagan buzzed by Russian nuclear bombers Sunday?

They're still passengers on the aircraft. They're not crew of the aircraft, and they're not cargo, so that leaves passengers.

Are the passengers of US nationals?

They're either service members that are serving on the carrier, or tech reps going out to work on the carrier, so yes.

Thanks for letting me know.

So now the real question, who needed to die and what did they know.

If the rear ramp is damaged the C-2 sinks like a rock. I hope that they all got out and are found.

That is the same area Jack Weeks went missing isn't it?

I just read a report that said 8 people have been rescued, and 3 are still missing.

It's also the same area that several aircraft have gone down in out of Okinawa.

Even though they're old as hell, I might be able to think of one Greyhound crash. They are reliable as hell.

Right, because there's no other reason for a plane to crash.

I'm betting it was sailors, techs, and part needed to keep a CBG at sea. Not targets of some global cabal. My thoughs are with them along with the SAR people as they look.

I've never heard of one crashing and I keep track of that stuff. I just hate riding in them because the passenger seats face backwards.

My old Navy buddies have said the same thing. The C-2 has been extremely reliable and mishap free. That there are 8 survivors tells me that the aircrew must have put the aircraft in the water in a somewhat controlled manner. Don't you think?

Yeah, they had to have been under control when they went into the water. There's no way 8 people survived otherwise.

The last crash of one looks like 1973 in Greece.

It didn't take long for this crash to be listed on Wikipedia.

Thinking in the vein of "The Hunt for Red October", just wondering if this could be a cover story to explain why we have search and rescue on the scene. Could it be they found the missing "Argentine" sub?

Sorry, I've been reading too much of this Q stuff
