US Navy suspended search for Japan’s F-35 that crashed in April

Vastavam web: The US Navy said Thursday it has suspended its search for a Japanese air force F-35A stealth fighter that crashed off Japan’s coast last month, after the allies scrambled to locate the aircraft filled with military secrets. Japan’s Defense Minister Takeshi Iwaya said his country would continue its search. The Navy said in a statement that it was withdrawing after its salvage vehicle, CURV 21, found unidentified debris from the aircraft.

It went missing about half an hour after taking off from the Misawa air base with three other F-35As.
