The United States Air Force is in search of a pilot who fell from a plane to the waters of the Gulf of Mexico, off the coast of Florida, during a parachute jump training exercise.
According to information from the military magazine Defense Blog, the military, who was not identified, jumped from a C-130 plane, four miles south of Hurlburt Field, headquarters of the Air Force Special Operations Command.
The other crew of the aircraft said they saw the man touch the water, but lost sight of him when they turned around to pick him up.
Coast Guard personnel collaborate in the search that is conducted in the water, approximately one and a half miles south of Santa Rosa Island, Florida, along the Florida Panhandle.
According to information published by Northwest Florida Daily News, a large water and air search operation has been implemented to locate the officer who belongs to the 24th Special Operations Wing in Hurlburt Field, Florida.
