    Default C-130 Crash

    Brutal!! I am going to say improper weight and balance caused this. Load shifting on takeoff is my best guess. RIP! https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/...=.1aaf266d1b12

    Very very Sad

    With all the locks designed to keep the CG static, would have to be an epic screw up

    Very sad indeed. I have seen some news reports saying this was it's final flight before a planned decommissioning at Davis-Monthan Air Force Base in Arizona. So probably no cargo. Unlike the 747 crash in Bagram back in 2013, the video I have seen of this one does not make me think load shift, but something else. I'm thinking a prop (#1 probably) went to zero pitch or beta in flight.

    This was a load shift

    wasn't that a problem with them a long time ago? I remember hearing about it when I was in.

    Yep, me too..... (747 and the C130)
    Not sure of the problems in the history of the aircraft. I would think a rudder hard over (like the early 737's had) would do the same.

    Engine or prop failure on the left side. Instinct says to push the other 3 to the wall.

    But you need to remember to have max deflection of the rudder. Or the lift over the good side gets too high and the bad side stalls and drops.

    I can't watch stuff like that. Sickening.
