HURLBURT FIELD, Fla. (AP) - Two of five crew members who were injured in the crash of an Air Force tilt-rotor aircraft have been released from the hospital.
Air Force officials said Friday that three others remained hospitalized, all in stable condition.
The CV-22 Osprey attached to the 1st Special Operations Wing at Hurlburt Field in the Florida Panhandle crashed Wednesday. The aircraft went down on neighboring Eglin Air Force Base's military reservation near Navarre while on a gunnery training mission.
Maj. Brian Luce and Tech. Sgt. Christopher Dawson were released from Eglin's hospital.
The other injured airmen were at Sacred Heart Hospital in Pensacola. None of the injuries are life-threatening.
The wing's Osprey squadron is standing down to focus on helping the inured men and their families. It is expected to resume flying Tuesday.
