Two U.S. Marine Corps personnel were killed and two others were seriously hurt in a helicopter crash in Morocco, according to a statement by U.S. Africa Command.

The statement said that an MV-22 Osprey operating from the amphibious assault ship USS Iwo Jima crashed in a Royal Moroccan military training area southwest of Agadir, Morocco, while participating in “Exercise African Lion,” Wednesday.

“Four U.S. Marine Corps personnel were on the aircraft at the time of the incident. Two personnel died as a result of their injuries sustained in the crash,” it said. “The two other personnel were severely injured in the crash and are being medically evacuated for further treatment.”

    I am a former USMC CH-46 mechanic/crewchief and i have also been a mechanic as a civilian on the V-22,it is a flying death trap and extremely hard to keep fling because it is maintenance intensive.
