Seven U.S. military personnel were hurt on Monday when an F-35C warplane had a 'landing mishap' on the deck of the aircraft carrier USS Carl Vinson in the South China Sea and the pilot ejected, the U.S Navy said.
A Navy statement said the incident happened during 'routine flight operations' in the South China Sea.
The status of the $94 million fighter jet was unclear.
'The pilot safely ejected from the aircraft and was recovered via U.S. military helicopter,' it said.
'The pilot is in stable condition. There were seven total sailors injured.'
The statement said three of personnel required evacuation to a medical facility in Manila and four were treated by on-board the carrier and released.
It said all the personnel evacuated were assessed as being in stable condition.
The flight deck of a carrier is considered one of the most dangerous work environments in the military.
