Recommended Posts

A search is underway for three people who were aboard a Navy contract aircraft that crashed in the Pacific Ocean off Southern California on Wednesday morning, officials said.

The Learjet crash was first reported a little before 8 a.m. PT, about a mile southwest of San Clemente Island, according to the U.S. Coast Guard.

A Coast Guard spokesperson confirmed to CBS News that the crash involved a Navy contract plane that had taken off from Point Mugu, which is part of Naval Base Ventura County, located about 60 miles northwest of Los Angeles.
