Two South Korean airmen were killed on Friday after an air force fighter jet crashed into the sea off the west coast, a media report said.
The F-5F plane went down near the coastal city of Gangneung during a training flight, Yonhap news agency quoted an unnamed official as saying.
"Our rescue team has discovered bodies of the two pilots and are recovering the wreckage scattered in the waters," the official said.
There was no information about the possible cause of the crash, which took place 237 km east of Seoul.
