Marine Plane Crash Cause Revealed

Chicot Memorial

ITTA BENA, MS (Ben Caxton) — It took a year and a half but military investigators have determined the cause of a plane crash that killed 16 servicemen in Mississippi. Bad maintenance practices at a Georgia Air Force base missed a deteriorating propeller blade in 2011. It broke off six years later over a Delta soybean field causing the KC-130T to break into pieces and crash. The Air Force, Navy, and Warner Robins Air Logistics Complex are blamed for negligence in the report. Immediately following the July 2017 crash all Navy and Marine Corps C-130s were grounded and 43 aircraft have or will be receiving new propellers. The investigation into the crash suggests that the flight crew and passengers did not suffer for long and could do nothing as the plane disintegrated and fell to earth.
