PostSubject: Marine Corps KC-130 aircraft loaded with ammunition explodes at 20,000 feet and crashes in Mississippi soybean field   Tue Jul 11, 2017 6:16 am

Please consider that this plane may have been used to move ammo outside the military.
Maybe used before repair. Removed from service due to.. get what I mean?
130's have been known to loose a wing but does not look that way in this as you can see the two impressions in the field and 4 burning hot spots, engines and fuel tanks.
So what blew? some ammo? Where would it be going to? Against Americans? Lot of questions!!

At least 16 people are dead after a U.S. Marine Corps. KC-130 airplane from Tennessee crashed into a soybean field in Mississippi on Monday afternoon - leaving a five-mile debris field.
Leflore County Emergency Management Agency Director Frank Randle told reporters at a briefing late on Monday that 16 bodies had been recovered after the stricken aircraft spiraled into the ground about 85 miles north of Jackson in the Mississippi Delta.
A witness said some bodies were found more than a mile from the crash site.
Alan Hammons, an official with the nearby Greenwood Airport, told CBS affiliate WNBD-D1 the plane was being tracked by air traffic controllers in Memphis and suffered a structural failure at 20,000 feet around 4pm.
Initial findings suggest that the plane suddenly exploded mid-air and investigators believe it departed from Naval Support Activity Mid-South Base near to Memphis.
Wreckage has been found on both sides of Highway 82, meaning an explosion most likely happened prior to the crash.
The official Twitter account of the U.S. Marine Corps. tweeted that a 'USMC KC-130 mishap occurred the evening of July 10. Further information will be released as available.' 
LeFlore County EMA Director Fred Randal told WLBT that investigators have already begun searching for clues as to why the aircraft seemingly dropped out of the sky from 20,000 feet.
