Russian jets collide over Sea of Japan

A rescue operation in the Russian Far East found the body of one pilot and rescued another after two fighter jets collided over the Sea of Japan during a training flight on Friday, Russian media reported.

Russian news agencies quoted the ministry as saying that the body of one pilot was found “without any sign of life.”

The Russian Su-34 bombers touched in mid-air and fell into the sea near the Strait of Tartary, which separates Russia’s Sakhalin island from the mainland, according to the country’s Investigative Committee.

The committee also said it had opened a criminal investigation into the case.

The accident took place during a scheduled training exercise 35 kilometers from the shore in Russia’s Far East, Russian news agencies reported, citing the defense ministry.
