Reports are coming in that a C-130 Hercules military transport plane crashed on Wednesday near a Georgia airport. Fox News claims that after the crash occurred, plumes of black smoke filled the air.
According to one news source, the plane was carrying five people. So far, a total of two are reported dead and it is unlikely that anybody survived.
The Federal Aviation Administration remarked that the plane was flying to Davis-Monthan Air Force Base in Arizona. The military transport plane went down between Highway 21 and Crossgate Road, located next to Savannah/Hilton Head International Airport.
Pictures show an ambulance on the scene. They also show the plane after the crash covered in black smoke and fire.
So far, it is unclear exactly what caused the crash. It is also unclear whether there are injuries as a result of the crash.
According to CNN, emergency crews are responding to the military cargo plane crash.
"It was horrible," said Denver Goodwin, who works at the wrecker service down the street from the crash location. "The ground shook like a bomb was going off. All the people in the building started panicking. It was absolutely horrible."
Minh Phan, who posted a picture on Twitter, was located at an outer mall in Pooler, Georgia, a few miles away when he captured an image of smoke rising over the tree line.
This is a developing story.
