Default God speed Soldiers

I talk as much **** as the next RA soldier about the Guard but in death we are all warriors. God speed troops, could of been a hell of a lot worse if that thing had been at full capacity.

Saw one take off here a couple weeks ago with the outside right engine smoking. The pilot literally shook it off tilting back and forth quickly until the smoking stopped then took off south towards Houston. Craziest thing I ever did see.

Gods Speed to them all...

Just read it was Puerto Rico Guard. How much you want to bet when they get done investigating they find that the lil govt down there has been spending the federal dollars given to them for their Guard force on something "other". This is a tried and true aircraft here, they just don't fall out of the sky on fire without taking a missile or two in most cases.

No kidding. Sounds like a payload shift imbalance maybe.

I don't think it was on fire before hitting the ground, at least I didn't see any in the video. dang those last few seconds before impact must have been horrific.... RIP
