Missing USS Stennis S-3B Found

All four crewmen declared dead after wreckage found on island new Iwo Jima

Last Wednesday ANN reported that four Navy aviators were missing Tuesday after their S-3B failed to return to the USS Stennis after a mission. The search and rescue mission to find them found the wreckage of their aircraft but had not found the bodies of the crew. Today, all four were declared dead.

The Viking twin-engine jet was deployed with Sea Control Squadron VS-35. The flight was a training mission for the crewmen. The S-3B is an all weather surveillance, electronic warfare and SAR aircraft which can be armed with various air-to-sea and air-to-ground weapon systems. It is also the type in which President Bush flew in when he visited the USS Abraham Lincoln last year.
