Japón pide al ejército de EUA que suspenda los vuelos del convertiplano Osprey

By Jordi Bou

November 30, 2023 - Japón ha solicitado al ejército de EUA que suspenda todos los vuelos no urgentes de Ospreys V-22 sobre su territorio luego de que uno de los jets operados por la Fuerza Aérea de EUA sufrió un accidente fatal.

Japan's NHK broadcaster said the CV-22 Osprey hybrid plane had been trying to land at Yakushima Airport with one engine on fire.

The U.S. Air Force said the cause of the mishap during a routine training mission, which killed at least one person, is currently unknown. Search and rescue operations to find the remaining seven crew are still ongoing.

The Osprey, developed by Bell Helicopters and Boeing and which can operate like a helicopter or a fixed-wing plane, has suffered a string of fatal crashes over the years.
