A C-130J Hercules cargo plane crashed Friday in central India killing all five of its crew members, an Air Force spokesman said.
The US-made military aircraft came down on the outskirts of Gwalior city in Madhya Pradesh while on a routine flight, group captain Gerard Galway told AFP.
"We can confirm that all five crew members have died in the crash," he said.
In a statement, the defence ministry said the aircraft crashed at 10:00 am local time (0430 GMT) after taking off from the tourist city of Agra, home to the Taj Mahal.
