Marine F-18 crashes off Okinawa. Why does Davis still have a job?

via USNI News.
The Marine pilot of a F/A-18 Hornet is missing following a crash off the coast of Japan, III Marine Expeditionary Force said in a statement Wednesday morning.
The fighter – assigned to Okinawa-based 1st Marine Aircraft Wing — was operating about 120 miles southeast of Iwakuni, Japan when the pilot ejected about 6:40 p.m., the statement said.
“The aircraft was conducting regularly scheduled training at the time of the mishap. The cause of the incident is under investigation,” the statement said.
Unspecified search and rescue efforts to find the missing Marine are underway.
How many more pilots and aircraft does the USMC have to lose before someone decides that they've lost faith in this guys leadership?  He's fired Squadron Commanders like its the latest hot thing but fails to take responsibility for the condition of the Wing.

This is substandard leadership.  Mark my words.  This crash will be blamed on the pilot and Davis will only come out of his hole to tout how revolutionary the F-35 is.

Meanwhile Marine Air Crew and their passengers will be in more danger from jacked up procurement/maintenance than they will be from enemy activity.

Davis needs to be fired.
