KC-130 and F/A-18 crash off Iwakuni

Recommended Posts

“III MEF Marines”released on FB that the second Marine found had passed. Still no other news, but it sounds like everyone who can get there is out looking. Here’s hoping for a Christmas miracle.

This has been happening way too often all across military aviation. Just read about the KC-130T crash being a corroded prop that came apart.

Nickel on the grass for the pilot that didn't make it yesterday.

The WX has not been great for the search, but there are still plenty of good folks out there looking and trying to work some magic.

Report came out recently. Article and full PDF report.

Causal: Loss of SA by MP2. 

Significant Contributing Factors: MP2's Lack of Proficiency with NSAAR, Inadequate Supervision, MP2's Consistent Below Average Performance, and Unprofessional Command Climate
