A United States Marine Corps aircraft, the Bell Boeing V-22 Osprey, crashed on Melville Island in Australia during a training exercise, resulting in at least three deaths and five critical injuries. The cause of the crash is under investigation, and recovery efforts are ongoing. The crash occurred during Exercise Predators Run, which involves the militaries of the United States, Australia, Indonesia, the Philippines, and East Timor. The Osprey is a hybrid aircraft that takes off and lands like a helicopter but can cruise like an airplane. This is the sixth fatal crash of a Marine Osprey since 2012.
