On May 2, a horrific crash took place in Savannah, Georgia involving a U.S. military cargo plane. Sadly, nine people were killed as a result of the incident.
The crash took place near the Savannah/Hilton Head International Airport. The plane, known as the “Hercules” is a cargo plane that belongs to the United States Air Force’s Air National Guard 156th Air Wing based in Puerto Rico.
I have been briefed on the U.S. C-130 “Hercules” cargo plane from the Puerto Rico National Guard that crashed near Savannah Hilton Head International Airport. Please join me in thoughts and prayers for the victims, their families and the great men and women of the National Guard.
