A military hearing into the incident began this morning at Camp Lejeune.
It will determine whether the two will face a court martial.
Twenty people plunged to their deaths when the jet sliced through a gondola cable last February.
A preliminary investigation by the Marines blamed the crew for the accident, saying the jet was flying too low and too fast.
