NAVARRE, Fla. (AP) — Military officials say five airmen have been hospitalized after an Osprey tiltrotor aircraft crashed during training in the Florida Panhandle.

The CV-22 Osprey crashed Wednesday evening on Eglin Air Force Base property north of Navarre. The aircraft is assigned to the 1st Special Operations Wing.

A Hurlburt Field spokeswoman says all five airmen on board the Osprey were injured. Master Sgt. Kristina Newton tells the Northwest Florida Daily News (http://bit.ly/LC4pTm) that three of the airmen were flown to hospitals. Two were taken to hospitals by ambulance. Their conditions were not immediately available.

The extent of the damage to the Osprey was not released Wednesday night. Air Force officials will be investigating the crash.

Hurlburt Field is the Air Force's Special Operation Command headquarters.
