A fighter pilot was forced to eject during an attempted landing on the aircraft carrier USS Carl Vinson in the Celebes Sea, south of the Philippines, the US Navy has said. The pilot was recovered safely.

The F/A-18E fighter jet, which was part of Carrier Air Wing 2, was on final landing approach after conducting “routine flight operations,” US 7th Fleet Command said in a statement.  The incident is under investigation.

There are no apparent injuries at this time,” the Navy said, noting that the pilot has been evaluated by medical personnel aboard the Carl Vinson.

The carrier is the flagship of a task force that was “steaming out toward the Sea of Japan” earlier this month, the White House said.

    A US fighter jet, which was involved in a show of force against North Korea, has crashed into the sea.


    The F-18 crashed while attempting to land on an aircraft carrier in the Celebres Sea, near the Phillipines.

    The sole pilot survived by ejecting and landing in the sea, before being rescued by a helicopter crew. He is not seriously injured. 

    A US military spokesman said: "A pilot safely ejected and was quickly recovered by a helicopter assigned to HSC-4 aboard USS Carl Vinson while conducting routine flight operations during a transit in the Celebes Sea.
