The navy announced an “Aviation Safety Pause” following a string of deadly crashes. Aviation units that have not been deployed will remain grounded, as a result of the multiple crashes in the last two weeks. The Naval Air Forces said units will review risk management practices and conduct training on threat and error management processes.
Five marines were declared dead after a transport aircraft crash in Southern California. The Marine Corps confirmed the news Thursday morning. On Wednesday, local and federal firefighters responded to the scene after the Osprey aircraft went down during a training exercise in a remote area, some 115 miles east of San Diego.
