Nine crewmen from five aircraft have been reported missing after failing to return from bombing missions in Operation Desert Storm.

As of late yesterday, seven of the nine had been identified by Pentagon officials, who said no bodies had been recovered by late Friday. The Iraqi government has claimed that it has captured American pilots and will produce them.

The downed U.S. planes include a Navy F/A-18 Hornet, two Navy A-6E Intruders, an Air Force F-15E Strike Eagle and a Marine OV-10A ground-support plane. An Air Force F-4G Wild Weasel electronics warfare fighter was reported lost but not in the fighting, and both of its crew members were reported rescued.

Last night, the Defense Department said Marine Corps Lt. Col. Clifford M. Acree, 39, and Chief Warrant Officer Guy L. Hunter, 46, the crew of the OV-10A, have been listed as missing in action. Their home towns were not given.

Early yesterday, Pentagon officials identified the two crewmen of the F-15E missing since Thursday as Maj. Thomas F. Koritz, 37, and Maj. Donnie R. Holland, 42. Officials at Seymour Johnson Air Force Base in Goldsboro, N.C., where both men were based, said Koritz was from Rochelle, Ill., and Holland from Bastrop, La.

Doug and Christine Holland of Bastrop, Holland's parents, said their daughter-in-law, Christine, was notified that Holland had not returned with his squadron. The couple has two children.

Earlier, authorities had identified two Navy fliers based at Oceana Naval Air Station in Virginia Beach as missing when their A-6E did not return from a bombing mission. They are Lt. Robert Wetzel, 30, and Lt. Jeffrey N. Zaun, 28, from Cherry Hill, N.J. Wetzel and Zaun, both of whom are single, were flying from the carrier USS Saratoga.

Navy Lt. Cmdr. Michael Scott Speicher, 33, of Jacksonville, Fla., was the first U.S. casualty. He was listed as missing after his F/A-18 was hit by an Iraqi-fired surface-to-air missile on the first night of bombing.
