HONOLULU — The Marine Corps says one Marine has died after an Osprey aircraft made a hard landing in Hawaii and the 21 other people on board were taken to hospitals.

The 15th Marine Expeditionary Unit said in a statement Sunday that the Osprey had a “hard-landing mishap” around 11:40 a.m. while the Marines were training at Bellows Air Force Station on Oahu.

A Marine Corps spokesman, Capt. Brian Block, says 22 people were aboard the aircraft, including 21 Marines and one Navy corpsman assigned to the unit.

The 15th Marine Expeditionary Unit is based at Camp Pendleton in California and is in Hawaii for training.
