Two U.S. Navy jets crashed into the western Pacific Ocean Thursday and, while one pilot was rescued, the search is still on for the other, Pentagon officials announced Friday.

The F/A-18 Hornet fighter jets were from Carrier Air Wing 17 based at Naval Air Station Lemoore in California's San Joaquin Valley, The Associated Press reported. The air wing is embarked on the aircraft carrier USS Carl Vinson.

The Navy says the rescued pilot was returned to the carrier and is being treated. It says the planes haven't been recovered.

Officials say other aircraft still in the air in the vicinity were safely recovered.

An F/A-18E Super Hornet crashed in June as it prepared to land on the Carl Vinson off the Southern California coast. The pilot was able to eject safely.
