    Five people aboard an Italian C-130 military transport plane died after it crashed Monday in Pisa, military sources said.

    Quoting unnamed Italian Air Force sources, the ANSA news agency reported that the plane, part of the 46th Air Force Brigade, crashed at 2:10 p.m. shortly after takeoff during a training exercise in Pisa.

    Eyewitnesses reported seeing the plane spin out of control before it crashed in flames.

    The plane came down just outside the airport area and onto the tracks of the local rail line, Pisa Mayor Marco Filippeschi told the news service.

    Well, crap. :salute: My prayers to the families of those involved, and for the investigators, that they find and fix any problems that may've caused the crash.
