Crashed in Leflore County, in the Mississippi Delta, where my mom is from. Went down along Hwy. 82, between Itta Bena and Moorhead. Apparently broke up in flight.

Read that the oldest of these was built in 1983, with the newest being over 20 years old (the first 130 was delivered in the mid-50s).

Wonder what happened.

Interested to know what happened as well.

Rest in peace, Marines.

I heard about this a few days ago since I live in Mississippi. We have a lot of military bases here. Most of them are used to store stuff. I honestly couldn't tell you how many humvees we have in Gulfport that are sitting on multiple flats.

Do a satellite view of the Red River Arsenal in Texarkana.... There's got to be 100,000 vehicles, AT LEAST

Airframe age probably wasn't a factor.
I've flown on airline MD-80s almost as old in the past year and those aircraft see a lot more hours and cycles than would a reserve C130.
What happened?
Who can say, but one might guess either loss of control resulting in the aircraft exceeding its envelope by enough to have failed, undetected corrosion resulting in failure or undetected fatigue cracking resulting in failure.
Not likely that some never before seen failure could have occurred in such a mature design, although it is possible.
After all, how many hours and cycles had been flown by the B737 fleet before the rudder valve problem was discovered?

Maybe...

Two debris fields suggest inflight breakup.

The airplane had two incidents of airframe damage in its past, so, airframe failure remains a possibility.

No way related but interesting C130 wing failure during pull up non the less...

With eyewitness reports of an engine smoking, prop failure is a possibility as ocurred here, Godspeed to these young men.

That was a very old C-130 without the "wing box" upgrade. The military hasn't flown those for decades.


You get what you pay for...
So keep in mind how much you paid for this advice.

Prop failure is a possibility - but not because eyewitnesses saw smoking.

85% of eyewitnesses to aviation accidents report seeing things that DID NOT HAPPEN.

People are ill-equipped to judge what is happening with an airplane. Human memory is a funny thing where stress is involved. The result: most eyewitness accounts should be discounted.

Prop or engine failure on C-130 is very rare and usually does not cause aircraft loss even if is looses the gearbox.

The C-130 is a venerable, storied aircraft but it unfortunately has some accidents under its belt. Accidents that cost us valuable American lives. My hearts out to them and their families. Semper Fi and RIP
