Not near Okinawa. It doesn't have anywhere near that kind of range or speed to get that far this fast.

It never does. I've seen them listed like five minutes after it hits the news. It's like people sit there waiting to edit a new one in.

There's been speculation that the missing sub is actually North Korean. Granted that's not confirmed but it's what made me think along those lines.

Thanks for the quick reply!

That doesn't make any sense. What would a NK sub be doing off the coast of Argentina, and why would the Argentine government be willing to cover it up for them?

You guys do realize that this plane crash is literally on the opposite side of the planet from where the sub was lost, right?

They were apparently on approach when they went into the water. The Japanese Defense Minister's office said that he was told they may have had engine problems.

Glad we have some folks on ATS that know how to use Google.
I searched for C2 aircraft and only came up with an epoxy repair compound manufactured by Henkle.

Because US military aircraft designations have a dash between the letter and the number. It's C-2, not C2.

At this point, the odds are that the three missing weren't able to get out of the aircraft.

They use the same T56 engines in some of the ship designs.

The sad thing is it was most likely guys meeting the carrier, either coming from shore duty or going to their first command. Never got to get cod’d Off but I’ve heard it’s pretty crazy and not particularly enjoyable. To the three missing, rest easy boys, we’ve got the watch.

A total of six destroyers (three US, three Japanese), two Japanese helicopter carriers, and multiple types of aircraft are involved in the search. Sadly, as I said earlier, it's doubtful they ever made it out.

The aircraft belonged to VRC-30, Det 5.


The ships and aircraft looking for the missing sailors, “U.S. Navy guided-missile destroyers USS Stethem (DDG-63), USS Chafee (DDG-90) and USS Mustin (DDG-89); MH-60R Seahawk helicopters of the “Saberhawks” from U.S. Navy Helicopter Maritime Strike Squadron (HSM 77); P-8 aircraft from the “Fighting Tigers” of U.S. Navy Maritime Patrol and Reconnaissance Squadron (VP) 8; P-3 Orion aircraft of the “Red Hook” U.S. Navy Maritime Patrol and Reconnaissance Squadron (VP) 40; JMSDF Helicopter Carrier Japan Ships JS Kaga (DDH-184) and JS Ise (DDH-182); JMSDF Akizuki-class destroyer JS Teruzuki (DD-116); JMSDF Murasame-class destroyer JS Samidare (DD-106), and JMSDF Hatakaze-class destroyer JS Shimakaze (DDG-172),” according to a Thursday statement from 7th Fleet.

According to the copilot that was on the aircraft, Lt Combs "flew the hell out of the aircraft" to get them down safely. This was the first recorded water landing, and first fatal C-2 crash since they started recording in 1980.
