Depends on the service. Military crashes are handled by the service that owned the aircraft. If it's Air Force, which it appears it might not have
been, they'll seat a Safety Investigation Board that will do a classified investigation that will be distributed to units that operate the aircraft.
At the same time, they have an Accident Investigation Board, that has 90 days to release a public accident report. Sometimes they get released closer
to a year, through a FOIA, but they'll release at least a statement about the findings in a few months. The investigation is similar to an NTSB
investigation. They have officers from various departments that will check the engines, life support systems, maintenance history, etc.
