I am saddened by the WC-130H aircraft accident
that occurred yesterday in Georgia, USA.
WC-130H was a hurricane reconnaissance aircraft.
Crew members used the plane for hurricane relief
The nine crew members who died in the crash pitched in during recovery efforts in the aftermaths of both Hurricane Irma and Hurricane Maria as part of the 198th Flight Squadron. With the aircraft, the group rescued U.S. citizens stranded on the British Virgin Islands after Irma blew through, and provided food and water to Puerto Rico after Maria cut off power and utilities to hundreds of thousands of residents.
A commentator here alludes to stall as cause of the crash. Do you think pilot loss of control seems probable according to the footage?
For identifying the causes of an accident and answering the fundamental question
"what really happened?" we must read the Aircraft Accident Report.
It will be prerared after few months.
There is no single cause of an accident!
(e.g. at 9th sec. on the video, something is falling from the sky.
Is aircraft's tail?)
Let investigators do their job and talk about the accident in the future.
Of course we should always wait for the official investigation to reveal its findings.
Thanks for the link.
I find that piece on the subject excellent.
A similar crash occured many years ago in England with a C130 in which the cause of the crash was the automatic"feathering" of the props.https://www.gov.uk/government/organisations/air-accidents-investigation-branch
