Heartbreaking video shows the moment a military plane crashed in Savannah

All nine people on board an aging U.S. cargo plane have been killed when the aircraft making its final military flight nose-dived into a highway in the USA state of Georgia, an official said.

Wednesday, may 2, in the state of Georgia (USA), near the city of Savannah, crashed military transport aircraft C-130. Meanwhile, the local official said no apparent survivors.

An aging USA military cargo plane carrying nine troops was destroyed in a fiery crash Wednesday as it made its final scheduled flight before being mothballed, officials said.

Puerto Rico National Guard officials say the plane was on the way to Arizona for a routine mission.

Master Sgt. Roger Parsons, a spokesman for the Air Force, initially would not speculate on cause of the crash and said it was too soon to provide definitive numbers.

Effingham County Sheriff's Department spokesperson Gena Bilbo said "it is an absolute miracle" that no vehicles on the road were involved in the crash. He said two other C-130 planes will not be flying because they require maintenance.

"There were definitely cars going both ways", he said "...

The authorities cut electric power to the area of the crash, suspended service on a rail line that runs next to Highway 21, and warned that a stretch of the roadway could remain closed for weeks.

The C-130 cargo plane crashed around 11:30 a.m. near the Savannah/Hilton Head International Airport.

"They will receive our support and that of the National Guard of Puerto Rico in this process", he added.

"The planes that we have in Puerto Rico - it's not news today that they are the oldest planes on inventory" among all National Guard planes nationwide, and they often face delays in getting spare parts shipped to the island, he said. The Savannah Air National Guard said a board of officers will investigate the incident.

According to the Savannah Hilton Head International Airport, flights are arriving and departing with minimal delays.

A photo tweeted by the Savannah Professional Firefighters Association shows the tail end of a plane and a field of flames and black smoke as an ambulance stands nearby. "Please avoid the area".

The Air Force says the plane was an Air National Guard C-130 cargo plane belonged to the 156th Air Wing out of Puerto Rico.

"It went nose-first down", she said.

"There was a loud boom, and our lights flickered on and off", Majors said.

The airport advised passengers to check with their airline for updated flight information.
