12 Marines aboard helicopters were conducting routine training - U.S. - Stripes

It was not immediately clear Friday what caused the crash...
The crash is the latest in a string of recent deadly U.S. military helicopter mishaps. Eight Army aviators died in three helicopter crashes between Nov. 23 and Dec. 2. Army Forces Command briefly grounded all stateside aviation units to review flight operation and maintenance plans and procedures in early December.
Two Army pilots died Nov. 23 in an AH-64 Apache helicopter crash in South Korea. Four soldiers were killed later that same day in a UH-60 Black Hawk helicopter crash at Fort Hood, Texas. A second Apache crash killed two Army pilots Dec. 2 during a training exercise at Fort Campbell, Ky.
The crash also comes less than a year after a Marine Corps tilt-rotor aircraft crashed during a training exercise in Hawaii, killing two Marines. The MV-22 Osprey went down last May with 21 Marines and a Navy corpsman on board. In 2011, one serviceman was killed and three others injured when a CH-53D Sea Stallion chopper crashed in Kaneohe Bay, Hawaii.
