As tensions between China and Taiwan continue simmering in the contested waters of the South China Sea, a pair of U.S. naval mishaps have raised concerns about the American military’s readiness in the Pacific theater should conflict erupt. 

The most recent incident occurred just days ago, when seven sailors were injured after an F-35C warplane crashed while trying to land on the deck of the aircraft carrier USS Carl Vinson.
