All five members of U.S. Navy helicopter crew were killed in the crash during the training mission, the Navy said Tuesday.
The SH-60F helicopter crashed just before 9:30 p.m. Monday about 10 miles (16 kilometers) west of Austin, Nevada, said a statement from Fallon Naval Air Station in Nevada.
The craft and crew were from Helicopter Antisubmarine Squadron Seven based in Jacksonville, Florida, part of a carrier air wing that deploys with the USS Harry S. Truman aircraft carrier.
The squadron began a month of training at Fallon on April 30.
Names of the crew were not released, pending notification of family and the cause of the crash is under investigation, officials said.
