(Newser) – An Air Force CV-22 Osprey has crashed during a routine training mission in Florida, injuring all five crew members, according to officials. The five airmen were hospitalized and the extent of their injuries was not disclosed, reports CNN. It's not yet clear what caused the accident. The tilt-rotor aircraft, which came into service in 2008, can fly like an airplane, yet land like a helicopter. The CV-22 is the Special Operation Forces variant of the Marine Corps MV-22 Osprey. The MV-22 was involved in a crash in Morocco in April that killed two Marines.
