NAPLES, Italy — The Navy has recovered a Super Hornet jet that was swept overboard from the USS Harry S. Truman in the Mediterranean Sea a month ago, the service announced Monday.

The F/A-18E, assigned to Carrier Air Wing 1, was recovered Wednesday from a depth of about 9,500 feet, U.S. Naval Forces Europe-Africa/U.S. 6th Fleet said in a statement. The plane was taken to a nearby military base and will be transported to the U.S., the Navy said.
