At Least 3 Killed in Military Plane Crash in US

WASHINGTON At least three members of the Puerto Rico National Guard were killed on Wednesday when a C-130 transport plane crashed in Georgia while on a training mission, the US military said.

Nine people were aboard the aircraft, Sgt. Noel Velez of the Georgia Air National Guard told CNN.

Authorities said they had no information on what caused the C-130 to plunge to the ground around 11:30 am near Savannah Hilton Head International Airport.

The Air Force identified the aircraft as belonging to 156th Air Wing, based in Puerto Rico, while a Puerto Rico National Guard spokesman said the plane was headed to Arizona at the time of the accident.

After several military representatives told media outlets that as many as five people perished, Master Sgt. Roger Parsons of the Georgia Air National Guard said that officials would not be providing any numbers until they were able to determine who was aboard the C-130.

The Defense Department recently confirmed the accuracy of an investigation by journalists who found that incidents involving military aircraft have increased by 38 percent since 2013.
