The remains of Marines killed in a 2018 crash of a KC-103J Hercules off Japan have been recovered and are being transported to Dover Air Force Base, Delaware, for identification, officials have announced.
The KC-130J aerial tanker and an F/A-18D Hornet went down on Dec. 6, 2018 during an exercise roughly 200 miles of the Japanese coast. The Hornet's pilot Capt. Jahmar F. Resilard was pronounced dead after being rescued. Another Marine aviator aboard the Hornet survived.
