An Algierien military transport carrying 99 relatives of military members and 4 crew crashed in the mountains about 300 miles from the capital.

It's believed weather played a role in the crash. It's the worst crash in the area since 2003 when an Air Algerie plane crashed, killing 102.

The plane was reported to be an American built C-130. It may have clipped a mountain in high winds.

Wow, that's terrible news, but the plane was PACKED. A C-130 is capable of about 92 troops.

What are the chances that the last two major Algerian plane crashes resulted in 102 deaths and a lone survivor?

RT


The last major plane crash in Algeria occurred on March 6, 2003, when a plane heading from Tamanrasset in the south of the country crashed with 103 people on board. Only one person survived on that occasion.


In 2003 the survivor was a 28 year old soldier.
2003 Air Algerie Flight 6289

Something isn't adding up with the conflicting death tolls given by RT whose sources were a military official stating 102 deaths/1 survivor and the locals stating 123-128 deaths/1 survivor.

Also, RT called the C-130 a jet.

This reminds me alot of that movie a while back

Unbreakable.



This suspense thriller unfolds as the audience is introduced to David Dunn. Not only is he the sole survivor of a horrific train-crash that killed 131 people he doesn't have a scratch on him. Elijah Price is an obscure character who approaches Dunn with a seemingly far fetched theory behind it all.


Lucky man? Or hindsight...

The numbers were revised down to 74 passengers and 4 crew, with one survivor. They impacted the mountain 16 miles short of the runway, while in contact with the tower, attempting to intercept the ILS.

Weather was reported as snow and lightning at the time.
