Savannah C130 crash

https://www.cbsnews.com/news/savanna...-live-updates/

I don’t see this here yet.

C130 crashes into a road near the Savannah airport.

The film is horrific

RIP to all.

Hard video to watch.
I wonder if they stalled it?
RumInt says they were taking her to the boneyard, what a crappy way to go.

Traffic I saw was it was heading to Davis–Monthan Air Force Base on a training mission and that it was the WC version of the C-130.

RIP to the fallen.

WC-130H that had just completed routine maintenance. I didn't realize until today that the wing at Keesler was the only one flying WC-130Js.

Regardless, awful tragedy. RIP to the fallen.

De-modded WC, I flew on her in the late 80's. The weather gear was taken off when McPeek eliminated the Active Duty Wx Recon Squadrons (86ish?).
Started life as a HC-130.

It's a sickening feeling when you are on an aircraft where you can hear the engines failing and feel yourself falling. I have been very fortunate that nobody ever died when I experienced that. Prayers out to the families of the deceased and to those who had to clean up the mess.

Rumint from guys watching takeoff from the ramp- looks like ENG 1 and/or 2 failed after takeoff, tried to bring it around for emergency landing.

RIP

Thanks for the clarification.

I was reading all the spot reports in our IOC when it first happened and there was a bunch of different stuff coming in.

RIP, I heard this morning that there were a total of 9 on the flight, up from 5.

C-130 has always struck me as being a very reliable aircraft, almost like the DC-3 of the more modern age.
