A C-130 MAFFS airtanker crashed Sunday afternoon in South Dakota while fighting a wildfire there. That makes three crashes this year alone.
Conflicting reports are currently reporting three or four survivors. At least three personnel are listed as "missing." In my younger days, I flew
airtankers for H&P out of Greybull, Wyoming. Missing means, unable to find significant portions of remains. Tanker down
According to Foxnews a few minutes ago 3 people were pulled from the wreckage and taken to the hospital. I am assuming they are injured but alive
since they didnt say anything about death (injuries are not known).
Hopefully they will be ok.
