The crew was training approximately 20 miles off the southern coast of Yemen.

This is the second most recent Black Hawk helicopter crash.

The nearly week-long search for five missing aircrew members was recently called off, following a downed Army UH-60 Black Hawk helicopter off the coast of Oahu, Hawaii, on August 16.
