Narrow escape from Hercules nose dive leaves several injured

2013-10-28 00:00

A TOOL box crushed two vertebrae in the back of a female captain and broke the ankle of a load master when the Hercules C-130 cargo plane in which they were flying went into a screaming, out-of-control nose dive at a military show at Roodewal shooting range on Thursday last week.

The pilots had pulled the plane into a 90° climb before the plane reached an apex and went into a nose dive at the same angle in what pilots called an “unusual position”.
