One piece of one of the propellers broke loose and was launced some 300 meters through the air. The airplane was heading for a maintenance facility when the incident happend.

One person is sendt to hospital. The gravity is not known.


the propellar landed t a carpark without hurting people or cars.

There is currently a military exsercise being conducted in Norway called Cold Response , incorporating some 8500 soldiers from 14 different countries. The American Hercuels and crew was one of the participants

Apparently the wheelstoppers that is placed infront of the wheels, somehow slipped and therefore the power of the propellars made the plane move uncontrollably without warning and before anyone manage to react the plane skidded a few meters and two of the proppellars crashed into a pile of snow and broke off the plane. They flew some 300 meters and landed on a carpark nearby. The propellars were smashed.

One person who was a passenger on the Hercules is apparently lightly injured.

When I was in C-130s and parked on ice we would use sand bags for chocks to keep that from happening. From the picture it looks like an Air Force blade. I've been through Norway a few times with the Navy C-130s and immediately thought it was one of those.

It looks like the airplane is a HC-130H. It has underwing fuel tanks between the engines, and refueling pods outboard of the engines, as well as that funny radome. It does not seem to have any markings or US roundels.

I am glade the propeller blade missed everyone. That would hurt, a lot, but not for long.

First time I opened the link all I saw was the prop blade.

That definately looks like an MC-130. Radome and refueling pods stears me in that direction.

The AFSOC (Special Operations Command) paint scheme keep us from knowing her identity, but here are two similarly configured C-130s. The nose leads me to believe it's not an MC-130W, and the extra wing fuel pods don't seem to be on MC-130H, so it's probably an MC-130P. What do you think?

An investigation team from the USA will arrive shortly to cooperate with Norwegian investigators. Apparently the aircraft got severe damage to propellars and atleast one of the fueltanks

It looks like a MC-130P or "combat shadow" It's amazing that no one was hurt by the flying prop blades. It's been a year or so since I put a prop together but each of those blades weighs at least 150 lbs if not more.


C-130; it's a love-hate relationship
