Sorry for causing confusion. I'm not so common with military designations, and when I heard that it's a tanker of the USAF, I thought that might have been one of those DC-10 tankers. Sorry, once again.

(CNN) -- A U.S. Marine Corps KC-130 refueling jet crashed Wednesday near the western Pakistan city of Quetta, Pentagon officials said.
Officials said there is no indication of enemy fire. Eyewitnesses said the plane was making a final approach for landing when it crashed and burst into flames. Search and rescue crews were responding to the scene.
Initial reports indicate there were seven Marines on board and that the plane was en route from Islamabad, Pakistan

LY744. Thank you for you're positive and insightful comments. They are much appreciated.
If you missed it, however, there is a 'suggest deletion' button located on every post. And believe it or not, one of the reasons for deletion is "posted in wrong forum." But I appreciate your effort in trying to make airliners.net a better place!
