Five days have passed since the accident in which the US military transport aircraft Osprey crashed off the coast of Yakushima in Kagoshima Prefecture, and while the recovery of the wreckage that seems to be part of the aircraft is progressing, the whereabouts of the seven crew members are unknown and search activities are continuing.

On the 29th of last month, the US Air Force transport aircraft Osprey crashed off the coast of Yakushima, killing one crew, and the whereabouts of the remaining seven of the eight crew members are unknown.

In four days, it will be five days since the outbreak, and the Japan Coast Guard, the Self-Defense Forces, and the U.S. military are continuing the search.

In addition, the wreckage, which is believed to be part of the aircraft found off the coast of Yakushima, was recovered by local fishermen and the Japan Coast Guard from the 3rd and handed over to the U.S. military based on the Japan-U.S. Status of Forces Agreement.

The debris is several meters long, and it is expected that the American side will investigate the cause of the accident in the future.

On the other hand, the U.S. Air Force initially announced that Sergeant Jacob Galliher (24), who was confirmed dead in this accident, belonged to Kadena Air Base in Okinawa, but corrected it to Yokota Air Base in Tokyo.
