All nine people on board were killed when a Puerto Rico Air National Guard cargo plane crashed on Wednesday near Savannah, Georgia, scattering fiery debris over a highway and railroad tracks. The military transport plane's fall was caught on surveillance camera. The Hercules WC-130, which was believed to be around 50 years old but was in good mechanical condition, nose-dived to the ground in Savannah shortly after take-off. Officials say the crash could have led to more fatalities on the ground- and that the pilot is a hero for avoiding hazardous landing areas.
