The U.S. Navy said it had recovered eight of 11 passengers aboard a Navy transport plane that crashed into the western Pacific Ocean on Wednesday afternoon. The Navy in a tweet said the eight rescued people, who are in good condition, are on board the USS Ronald Reagan aircraft carrier as the search for the three others missing continues. The C-2 twin-propeller plane was bringing passengers and cargo from Japan to the USS Ronald Reagan, operating in the Philippine Sea during a joint U.S.-Japan naval exercise.
