MANAMA, Bahrain, April 8 (UPI) -- No one was hurt when a U.S. Navy jet crashed into the water while operating near the USS Dwight D. Eisenhower in the North Arabia Sea Monday, the Navy said.

Search and Rescue swimmers recovered the two aircrew who ejected from the F/A-18F Super Hornet and returned them to the carrier, the U.S. 5th Fleet Public Affairs said in a release.

The Eisenhower was on a scheduled deployment to the U.S. 5th Fleet area of responsibility, conducting maritime security operations and theater security cooperation efforts, the Navy said.

This incident is under investigation, officials said.
