A US Navy transport plane with 11 people on board has crashed into the Pacific Ocean near Japan.

Eight of those aboard have been recovered in good condition and a search continues for three other missing personnel, the Navy said.

The plane crashed into the Philippine Sea off the southeast of Okinawa while flying to the aircraft carrier USS Ronald Reagan.

‘Personnel recovery is under way and their condition will be evaluated by USS Ronald Reagan medical staff,’ a statement from the Navy explained.

The White House said the president had been briefed on the crash, and minutes later the president noted on Twitter that a search and rescue was underway.

‘We are monitoring the situation. Prayers for all involved,’ he said.
