  • military refueling aircraft crashes in Mississippi; 5 dead

    A military refueling aircraft crashed Monday afternoon in a soybean field in LeFlore County, claiming at least five lives, officials said.
    Sheriff Ricky Banks said there were five confirmed dead as of 6:15 p.m. CT and that there were supposed to be nine people aboard the plane.
    Mississippi Emergency Management Agency Director Lee Smithson said the aircraft was a C-130. It crashed on the Sunflower-Leflore county line in west-central Mississippi, he said.
    The U.S. Marine Corps Twitter account posted that "A USMC KC-130 mishap occurred the evening of July 10. Further information will be released as available."
