from NBC News
Rough seas slowed the search early Oct. 7 for a missing U.S. airman — one of three swept away while taking photos near giant waves caused by Typhoon Phanfone in Japan. The body of Senior Master Sgt. James Swartz, an aerospace propulsion superintendent with the 116th Air Control Wing of Georgia Air National Guard, was recovered by the Japanese Coast Guard, USAF Kadena Air Base said in a statement. Georgia Air National Guard member Master Sgt. Daniel Paschal, an aerospace propulsion craftsman with the 116th Air Control Wing, and Air Force Staff Sgt. Joshua Schoenhoff, an instrument and flight control systems specialist with the 461st Air Control Wing, were also washed away. The unidentified body of one of the pair was recovered Oct. 7.
