The aircraft were identified as a KC-130-a plane involved in aerial refueling-and an F/A-18 Hornet-a twin engine fighter jet.

Search and rescue missions were being led by the Japanese Maritime Self Defense Forces, ABC News reported.

The Marine Corps said in a short statement that the incident occurred at 2 a.m. local time in Japan on Thursday (1700 GMT Wednesday). Officials said the information was provided by the USA side.

The aircraft had launched from Marine Corps Air Station Iwakuni and were conducting regular training when there was a "mishap", the Marine Corps said.

More than 50,000 US troops are based in Japan under the bilateral security pact.
