3 US Marines Lose Their Lives In Osprey Crash In Australia

Three US Marines died in an aircraft crash off the coast of northern Australia on Sunday, 27, August, 2023 while transporting troops during a normal military exercise.

Five others were “transported to Royal Darwin Hospital in serious condition,” according to a press release.

They were among 23 Marines on the MV-22B Osprey tilt-rotor aircraft when it crashed, and the cause of the tragedy is being probed.

The collision happened around 9.30 a.m. (0130 GMT) on the remote Tiwi Islands. The incident was described as “tragic” by Australian Prime Minister Anthony Albanese, who stated that Osprey was supporting the military drill Predators Run 2023. No Australians were involved in the crash.

Our focus as a government and as a department of defense is very much on incident response and making sure that every support and assistance is given at this difficult time, Prime Minister Scott Morrison said at a press conference in Western Australia.

The exercises involved around 2,500 people from Australia, the United States, the Philippines, Indonesia, and East Timor.

In response to an increasingly assertive China, the United States and Australia, a crucial Pacific partner, have increased military cooperation in recent years. Australian and American personnel have stood shoulder to shoulder for more than a century.

This incident serves as a reminder of the value of the service provided by our personnel and those of our partner nations.

Last month, four Australian soldiers were killed when their chopper crashed into the water off the coast of Queensland during massive bilateral exercises.
