Crash at Elmendorf AFB

A C-17 cargo plan crashed at Elmendorf AFB in Anchorage Alaska late Wednesday evening. There is no ejection system on the C-17 so it is most likely that anyone on board is lost. Here is the statement that was released by the Air Force. The Anchorage Daily News has much more on the story.

An Air Force C-17 cargo aircraft, assigned to the 3rd Wing at Elmendorf Air Force Base crashed about 6:14 p.m. (Alaska time) today. At the time of the accident, it was on a local training mission.
Four aircrew were on board; their condition is unknown at this time.
First responders are on scene.
A board of officers will investigate the accident.
More information will be released as it becomes available

The plane appears to have gone down in a similar location to where the AWACS plane went down in 1995 imageafter that plane had two of it?s engines struck by birds and killing 24 service members. I was stationed at Elmendorf from ?92 to ?94.
