A search is under way for crew members from two Marine Corps planes involved in what the military called a "mishap" off the coast of Japan.

According to USA media reports, there were two crew on the fighter jet and five personnel on the tanker plane.

The planes "were conducting regularly scheduled training when the mishap occurred", the statement said.

Japanese rescuers said he was in a stable condition and are continuing to search the waters for the other six servicemen about 60 miles south of the Muroto Cape on Shikoku island.

The planes involved are a KC-130 and an F/A 18, carrying a total of seven personnel, USA media quoted officials as saying.

Two Marine Corps aircraft went down in the waters off the coast of Japan early Thursday morning local time and a search is underway for the pilots and those on board.

The last major USA military aircraft incident occurred in May when an Air National Guard C-130 cargo plane crashed outside Savannah, killing all nine personnel on board.

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