The scene was grim near Savannah, Georgia, where C-130 Air National Guard cargo plane crashed Wednesday morning. The jet was attached to the Puerto Rico National Guard, and nine people were aboard that were all killed.
Witnesses say the planed seemed to be flying low and then apparently stalled as it approached Savannah/Hilton Head International Airport. It exploded as soon as it hit the ground, sending billows of black smoke into the sky.
The old plane, about 60-years-old, was from Puerto Rico’s 156th Airlift Wing. It was taking its final flight to Davis Monthan Air Force Base in Tucson, Arizona where it was to be decommissioned. It began experiencing problems shortly after takeoff. It ultimately took a nosedive and crashed into a road. A large fireball could be seen for miles. A surveillance camera from a nearby business captured the crash on video.
