Just got the breaking news about an hour ago from a news source. I didn't see anything on ATS yet, so here ya go! Seems a lot of places are lighting up with the story now though. A C-17 went down Wednesday, July 28th, 2010 (yesterday) around 7:00pm according to the Alaskan National Guard.

The plane apparently crashed at Elmendorf Air Force base in Anchorage, Alaska. It was somewhat close to Fort Richardson. Not sure what to make of it, I can't get too many pictures or videos for it with my slow internet but thought it'd be interesting to point out. From what I gather, harsh weather caused it? Not sure, someone correct me if I'm wrong.

edit to add a bit more info...

Damn, wish I could check it out, I live 10 miutes from Elmendorf. I havent heard any explosions or anything of the nature. Porbably just another un-experienced pilot. It's been happening more frequently lately.
