U.S. Military On High Alert After Fatal Osprey Crash In Japan; Entire Fleet Grounded | Details

The Air Force Special Operations Command said in a statement that the move was to "mitigate risk while the investigation continues." The Osprey aircraft can take off and land vertically like a helicopter and rotate its propellers forward to fly like an airplane.
