Beschrijving:
A US-military MC-12 reconnaissance aircraft flying a nighttime mission crashed in eastern Afghanistan. Two coalition servicemembers and a civilian working with the military were killed. There are no indications that the aircraft was brought down by enemy fire, said a defense official.

Janes.com reported on January 16 that the airplane may have been a US Army special mission platform instead of a USAF MC-12W. It would have been a Beechcraft King Air 300 Medium-Altitude Reconnaissance and Surveillance System (MARSS).
