Processional for remains of service members killed in plane crash

Military crash victims'The cream of the crop

James says officials will now continue the recovery process and investigation.

The FBI was on hand, along with local and state emergency responders and investigators, he said.

The plane was traveling from North Carolina to California carrying fuel, equipment and arms ammunition. Anyone removing items from the scene or near it could be criminally prosecuted, state Department of Public Safety Commissioner Marshall Fisher said.

Jones added the fire was punctuated by the pops of small explosions. "There is a large debris pattern", Brig.

The Marines gave no immediate details on the cause of the crash.

"Janet and I offer honest condolences to the family and friends of Indiana's own Ryan Lohrey, a Navy corpsman who lost his life in a tragic plane crash this week along with 15 other servicemen". He moved to North Carolina to join the Marines, Hutto said. The other nine Marines aboard, and the plane, were based in Newburgh, N.Y., Orange County Executive Steve Neuhaus said.

Sixteen service members were killed after a USA military transport plane crashed in rural MS on Monday evening, the U.S Marine Corps said on Tuesday. The seven belonged to the 2nd Marine Raider Battalion.




Fisher, who also spoke at Wednesday's news conference, said the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, as well as federal prosecutors in northern MS, are investigating reports that someone removed debris. His father told the CNN that Johnson loved his job. As a propeller-driven craft, the KC-130 does not fly as high as similar-size jets.

"They're still calling it an accident". "We're probably not going to know for a long time".

MS congressman Steven Palazzo said on Twitter he was "devastated", and offered prayers for the families of the victims. Their bodies were recovered late Monday, Leflore County Emergency Management Agency Director Frank Randle told reporters.

As reported by BBC, Phil Bryant, the MS governor said that the incident was a tragedy.

What is a KC-130 aircraft?

Marine Forces Reserve refueling and transport squadron owned the aircraft. Its normal range is 1,150 miles as a tanker and 3,200 miles on cargo missions.

President Donald Trump tweeted Tuesday that the incident was "heartbreaking", and that he and First Lady Melania Trump "send our deepest condolences to all!"
