An investigation is underway into what caused a B-1B bomber from Ellsworth Air Force Base to crash in eastern Montana.
Despite the wreckage, all four crew members on board the aircraft survived.
Around 9:30 a.m. Mountain Time Monday, officials say there was some sort of an emergency on the B-1B bomber and the aircraft ended up crashing.
But all four crew members which includes two pilots and two weapons system officers ejected from the aircraft by parachute before the bomber crashed near Broadus, Montana. They did sustain some minor injuries, but we are told they will be okay and are on their way to a hospital in Spearfish, South Dakota.
Officials say the bomber was completing a routine training mission with another B-1 when the emergency happened. Ellsworth officials were alerted by a wireless safety system when the bomber went down.
The four were recovery by local ranchers and emergency crews from Montana.
What caused the crash remains under investigation.
All B-1 bombers have been grounded in Ellsworth until further notice. Officials say they want to find a cause before they put anyone else at risk.
