The UH-60J vanished from radar screens some 30 km south of the JASDF’s Hamamatsu Air Base at about 18.00 h local time while conducting nighttime search-and-rescue drills, according to the Ministry of Defense (MoD) in Tokyo.

Japanese Defense Minister Itsunori Onodera said many parts of the aircraft have been found floating on the sea, indicating that the platform crashed in that area.

Before the incident the JASDF operated 37 UH-60J helicopters, which were built by Mitsubishi Heavy Industries under licence from Sikorsky, and 26 U-125A (Hawker 800) aircraft for search-and-rescue activities, according to the MoD.
