U.S. and Japanese divers have discovered wreckage and the remains of five crew members from a U.S. Air Force Osprey aircraft that crashed off southwestern Japan.

The search operation is ongoing to recover the remains of three other crew members, while two are still missing.

The U.S.-made Osprey is a hybrid aircraft that has raised safety concerns due to previous crashes. (Trending: Tucker Reveals The Moment He Became A Full-Blown Trump Supporter)

“The main priority is bringing the Airmen home and taking care of their family members,” the Air Force Special Operations Command stated.

“Support to, and the privacy of, the families and loved ones impacted by this incident remains AFSOC’s top priority.”

Japan has suspended its fleet of Ospreys and requested the U.S. military to ensure their safety before resuming flights.

The cause of the crash is under investigation, and Japan has limited authority to independently investigate U.S. military property under the Japan-U.S. Status of Forces Agreement.
