The combined effects of budget cuts, apathy from Congress, delays in new aircraft programs, and the wear and tear of 17 years of war have made it more unsafe for military aircraft to fly - especially planes and helicopters that continue to fly long after they were supposed to be retired. Once we can confirm the information, we will release it.

"We ask that you continue to be patient with us as the situation unfolds".

Tuesday's helicopter incident is not the first over USA territory this year. It is essentially used for minesweeping, transportation and is capable of carrying dozens of troops and tons of cargo.

Elsewhere, a Marine Corp pilot is in a stable condition after an AV-8B Harrier jet crashed in Djibouti, East Africa, on the same day as the CH-53E Super Stallion helicopter crash, the U.S. Naval Forces Central Command said in a statement.

No personnel on the ground were injured and there was no damage to the airport's infrastructure.
