C-5 crashes near Dover AFB

13 posts in this topic

It crashed into a field and broke into three pieces. Weird to see such a massive aircraft lying on the ground. No fire, 17 people on board, some injuries.

Any details? Clearly it didn't fall out of the sky, it looks like it skidded off the runway. Thankfully nobody was killed. :)

I too thought Corvette at first... but the AFB tipped me off to the plane not the car. :P

It did not crash on takeoff. The plane took off from Dover and developed engine trouble, they turned around to go back and crashed short of the runway in a field. Last I heard, all 17 were injured but only 3 remain hospitalized. The plane had a full load of fuel at the time as it was headed for Spain. No fire or explosion due to serious fire-supression systems in the fuel tanks(wings).

Damn, 68, I knew what that pic was before I even scrolled down. Strange how a hole in the ground could look so familiar. :(

I believe that flight 93 nosedived, whereas the C5 bumped,bounced and skidded to a halt.
