Search and rescue operations were underway at the scene.

The planes involved were an F-18 fighter and a C-130 tanker, the official said.

Japanese and USA officials say two American warplanes crashed into the Pacific Ocean off Japan's southwestern coast after a midair collision early Thursday, and search and rescue operations are underway.

Further details about the incident were not immediately released.

Two United States Marine aircraft are reported to have crashed off the coast of Japan today.

The aircraft - a KC-130 and an F/A-18 Hornet - had launched from Marine Corps Air Station Iwakuni in southern Japan. It was not clear how many crew members were on each of the planes.

Japanese search-and-rescue aircraft immediately responded to the emergency, the statement added.

Early reports that surfaced on Twitter report that an F/A-18 (unspecified variant) and a C-130 crashed into the sea with a total of seven crewmembers on board.

UPDATE: This story was updated at 5:45 P.M. on December 5 after one of the missing Marines was found alive.
