An Indian Air Force Lockheed C-130J Hercules has crashed 72 miles from Gwalior in Madhya Pradesh. All five crew members died in the accident.
The transport plane was part of a two-ship formation on a training mission out of Agra where it departed at 10:00 local time. Both aircraft descended to 300 feet altitude for a simulated drop. Preliminary findings suggest that KC-3803 hit the wake turbulence of the lead aircraft that was climbing to 1000 feet following the simulated drop.
The airplane probably stalled after it hit the wake turbulence with the crew unable to recover at low altitude.
