TOKYO (AP) – US navalists have identified a combat pilot who died after his jet was collided with a refueling aircraft during training from Japan’s coast, which led to the lack of five other navy men and a rescue.

Two pilots fly a F / A-18 Hornet that collided with a KC-130 Hercules at 2 o’clock on Thursday. The other pilot was rescued and the crew at the refueling plane was missing.

Marinkorpset identified the dead crew as Capt. Jahmar Resilard, 28, Miramar, Florida. He served with Marine All Weather Fighter Attack Squadron 242, stationed at Marine Corps Air Station Iwakuni in Yamaguchi, Japan.

“Bats is deeply saddened by the loss of Captain Jahmar Resilard. He was an effective and committed leader who cared for his marinists and other fighter pilots with passion,” said a colleague, James Compton, commander of the squadron.

“His warm and charismatic nature ties us together and we will miss him terribly,” he added.

The Marines said the two planes were involved in routine training, including aviation fuel, but it still investigated what caused the crash.

President Donald Trump tweeted that his thoughts and prayers were with marine corps crew members involved in the collision. He thanked the United States forces in Japan for their “immediate response and rescue efforts” and said that “whatever you need, we are here for you”.

The crash is the latest in the latest series of accidents involving the US military deployed to and near Japan.

Last month, a US Navy F / A-18 Hornet crashed from USS Ronald Reagan, the airline in the south-west of Japan’s southern island of Okinawa, but its two pilots were safely saved. In mid-October, a MH-60 Seahawk crashing Ronald Reagan of the Filipino Sea just after launch, causing fatal injuries to a dozen sailors.

More than 50,000 US troops are based in Japan under a bilateral security package.
