US fighter jet recovered from South China Sea

The F-35C Lightning II was retrieved on Wednesday from a depth of 12,400 feet (3,780 metres) using a remotely operated vehicle that fastened rigging and lift lines to the aircraft. A hook was lowered from a diving support ship’s crane to the sea floor, which was attached to the rigging. The jet was then lifted to the surface and hoisted aboard the vessel.
