A crew of nine Puerto Ricans were killed when a military cargo plane crashed near Savannah/Hilton Head International Airport minutes after takeoff, sending black smoke billowing into the sky.
 
The Arizona-bound C-130 Hercules crashed at an intersection near the airport and part of the plane was on the roadway.
 
It was flown by members of the 156th Air Wing from the Puerto Rico Air National Guard.
 
Photos and video from near the scene showed the wreckage burning until firefighters doused the blaze.
 
Most of the tail section appeared to remain intact, surrounded by scorched debris.
 
First responders spent the day working to contain the flames and searching for survivors.
 
But nearly eight hours after the crash, Effingham County Sheriff’s spokeswoman Gena Bilbo told the Associated Press "To our knowledge, there are no survivors."
 
"It miraculously did not hit any cars, any homes," Bilbo added. "This is a very busy roadway."
