Divers spotted what appeared to be the front section of the Osprey and possible crew members, and Japan suspended flights of its Osprey fleet pending the investigation into the crash.
The Air Force Special Operations Command (AFSOC) stated, “During a combined U.S.-Japanese search and rescue dive in the vicinity of Yakushima, Japan on Dec. 4, 2023, remains were discovered along with wreckage from the CV-22 mishap that occurred on Nov. 29, 2023. Currently there is a combined effort in recovering the remains.”
“The main priority is bringing the Airmen home and taking care of their family members,” wrote the AFSOC.
