Vietnam: CASA C212 plane went missing too

HANOI, June 16 (Reuters) - A Vietnamese coastguard plane, which was searching for a missing fighter jet and its pilot, disappeared off the radar on Thursday, state media and a military official said, the second such setback in three days.

  The CASA C212 plane carrying nine people went missing off the northern province of Haiphong province about noon local time, local media reported, citing military and provincial sources.  The coastguard plane was joining thousands of people looking for a pilot who went missing with a Sukhoi SU-30 MK2 fighter jet on Tuesday along the central part of the country coastline.

A military official working on the rescue confirmed the plane was missing and the numbers on board but requested anonymity as he was not authorised to speak to the media
