Reports stated that the helicopter was with the 3rd Marine Aircraft Wing, out of Miramar air station in San Diego, and that it was the nearby Naval Air Facility El Centro who confirmed the crash site was somewhere north of Plaster City, California.
Tuesday afternoon around 1435, a USMC CH-53E Super Stallion crashed near El Centro, California, killing the 4 man crew.
An investigation is under way into the cause of the crash.
The Sikorsky CH-53E Super Stallion is the largest and heaviest helicopter in the United States military. The Pentagon typically withholds identification of fallen troops until 24 hours after next-of-kin notification.
As word spread of the crash, officials offered words of support for the marines' families.
The military previously said that all four crew members were believed killed.
Marine officials have not identified the crew's squadron or the base from which it flew, according Capt. Morgan Frazer, spokeswoman for the 3rd Marine Aircraft Wing.
Tuesday's crash would be the deadliest Marine aircraft crash since a KC-130T transport plane went down in MS last summer, killing 15 Marines and a Navy sailor, according to the Associated Press.
The helicopter was reportedly a CH-53E. Though powerful enough to lift every aircraft in the Marine inventory except the KC-130, the CH-53E Super Stallion is compact enough to deploy on amphibious assault ships, and has the armament, speed and agility to qualify as much more than a heavy lifter.
The CH-53E Super Stallion is the largest helicopter in the USA military.
