YOKOTA AIR BASE, Japan — The Navy appears to have detected “pingers” from a KC-130J tanker and F/A-18D Hornet involved in a deadly midair collision last month off Japan’s southern coast, according to III Marine Expeditionary Force.

The aircraft out of Marine Corps Air Station Iwakuni crashed into the Philippine Sea on Dec. 6 during nighttime training about 200 miles south of Muroto Cape on Shikoku Island. https://www.stripes.com/news/navy-may-have-detected-signals-from-marine-tanker-jet-after-midair-collision-off-japan-1.563442
