LAS VEGAS — Military officials say four crew members escaped injury when a Marine Corps Osprey tilt-rotor aircraft made what investigators called a hard landing near Creech Air Force Base in Nevada.

Base officials released a statement saying the crash happened at 3:38 p.m. Monday on federal land during a training mission, and that rescue crews and federal officials secured the site.

The Las Vegas Review-Journal reported the MV-22 Osprey was assigned to the 3rd Marine Aircraft Wing at Marine Corps Air Station Miramar near San Diego.

MV-22 Ospreys can make vertical takeoffs and landings but fly forward like a fixed-wing plane.

Clark County fire officials reported the aircraft landed along U.S. 95 near Indian Springs, about three miles northwest of the base and about 48 miles northwest of Las Vegas.
