U.S. Marines Lockheed KC-130 crashes in Mississippi

A U.S. Marine Corps. KC-130 airplane crashed into a soybean field in Mississippi on Monday, July 10, 2017. Air traffic controllers in Memphis, TN said that the plane may have suffered a structural failure at 20,000 feet. Eyewitnesses working on farms in the rural area in which the military tanker/transport crashed reported that the plane was smoking as it descended and that it "corkscrewed" down to the ground. By 8pm Monday night, 16 bodies had been recovered.

Initial reports indicate that there may have been a catastrophic event at high altitude. Debris from the crash was scattered over an area approximately 5 miles wide. There may have been ammunition on board the military craft. An eyewitness reported that the fire resulting from the crash was punctuated by the "pops of small explosions."

Kreindler attorneys have handled matters involving the C-130 aircraft and Kreindler partners include former military pilots Justin Green, Daniel Rose and Brian Alexander.
