News says plane crashed was going from Cherry Point, NC to El Centro, CA but a flight like that would be much higher up by Memphis/Northern Arkansas (google map it!) how did it get so far south? Worst marine crash here or abroad in 12 years. One engine was witnessed on fire when it started going down.<===

Refueled at Millington NSA (Memphis) prior to the crash. KC130J can be refitted
for transport capabilities and can also be armed for ground support. "Suffered a
structural failure at 20,000'.

The military plane that crashed in Mississippi and killed 16 aboard was carrying a group of elite Marine troops to California for specialized training, US defense officials said.

This was a terrible tragedy - an immense loss of special forces which is reminiscent of Extortion 17. Pray this wasn't another case of sabotage of our finest in uniform.
