Wreckage Of Korean F-15 Found In East Sea

Two Lost In Training Accident

A South Korean Air Force F-15K fighter (file photo of type, below) went down in the East Sea during a routine training mission Wednesday night. Both crew members on board the aircraft were killed.

South Korea's Arirang News reports authorities are now trying to figure out if a mechanical problem led to the accident. The plane went down off the coast of Pohang about 8:20 pm local time, about 30 minutes after taking off from an airbase in Daegu City.

As for the cause -- this early in the investigation, military officials aren't ruling anything out. The aircraft was one of only four K-model F-15s in the South Korean inventory. It had just been delivered to the Seoul government by Boeing last October, one of 40 such aircraft recently purchased by South Korea at an overall cost of about $4 billion.

Early Thursday, South Korean naval vessels and helicopters were scouring the crash site, marked by an oil slick on the water, picking up debris and hoping to find something that might contribute to the investigation.
