Détails:
A USMC Lockheed KC-130R Hercules transport plane was destroyed in an accident near Shamsi, Pakistan. All seven crew members were killed.
The crew had requested a non-standard approach night time from the northeast, possibly because they were running half an hour late.
This request was denied as USMC aircraft were only allowed to land from the southwest to avoid overflying Shamsi at night. The crew then circled over a ridge with their altitude dropping to 3200 feet below the minimum safe altitude.
The airplane struck a mountainside at 3800 feet. The crew likely became disoriented while attempting the night landing.
The aircraft was attached to VMGR-352, MCAS Miramar, California.
