The Australian Navy has recovered the submerged remains of a U.S. Marine Corps Osprey that crashed off the east coast of Australia over the weekend, the Australian defense minister said Monday.

"The transition to a US-led recovery operation after an extensive search and rescue operation by aircraft and ships comes with the acknowledgement that three Marines are still unaccounted for", Senator Payne said.
