According to Japanese Public Broadcaster eight people had been rescued, with the remaining three unaccounted for.

The propeller powered transport plane, a C-2 greyhound, carries personnel, mail and other cargo from mainland bases to carriers operating at sea.

C-2 planes have been in operation for more than five decades and are due to be replaced by the long-range tilt-Rotor Osprey Aircraft.
