05/13/12 176 W - + 7 - 3 Anson County C-130 Crash, April 29, 1992

My deadliest disasters database includes military aviation accidents with fatalities numbering five or greater. A reader informs of an incident not listed. Nine crew members aboard a C-130 transport plane were killed when their craft crashed into Blewett Falls Lake in Anson County on April 29, 1992. The plane was based at Pope Air Force Base, about 40 miles east of the crash site. The incident ties for ninth deadliest military plane crash in the state's history. The highest fatality count was an Army transport crash on September 20, 1943, at Laurinburg-Maxton Army Air Base. The crash killed all 25 aboard, and was also the first fatal crash at the base. Memo to self: updated my database with the Anson County incident.
