This is the second major crash the US military has experienced this month.

Earlier this month, three US service members died after a US military aircraft crashed off the east coast of Australia. Twenty-three of the 26 personnel aboard the MV-22 Osprey were rescued. 

The aircraft was in Australia for a joint military training exercise held by the US and Australia last month in Shoalwater Bay.
