Banks said that a helicopter was searching for others in the dark around the crash site in a soybean field on Monday, more than five hours after the KC-130 refueling tanker spiraled to the ground into a soybean field. "Marine Corps Air Station Cherry Point and the Havelock community are in our thoughts and prayers".

The aircraft was originally based out of New York's Stewart Air National Guard Base, Marine Corps officials said.

The cause of the crash was not immediately known and the identities of those killed were not immediately released.

Its last known location was over rural MS, and the resulting debris from the crash was found in LeFlore County, fewer than 100 miles from Jackson, the state's capital.

Banks said most of the dead were Marines.

The president tweeted his condolences Tuesday, saying the crash was "heartbreaking".

No Cherry Point Marines were on the KC-130, according to Mike Barton, Cherry Point Director, Joint Public Affairs Office.

No more smoke is rising the day after the fiery crash of a USA military plane in a field in rural MS, killing at least 16 people.

The Marine Corps said that while they are still investigating the details of the crash, their primary focus is to provide the necessary support and resources to friends, family, and service members who are going through this hard time.

All 16 service members who were aboard the plane died, officials said.

Fred Randle, the local county emergency management director, told USA media that all 16 victims were on the plane and there were no survivors.

Gov. Phil Bryant of MS expressed his condolences after the crash.

Tillis said the crash is a reminder of the dangers that military personnel face even on training missions.

The Greenwood Fire Department chief, Marcus Banks, told the Greenwood Commonwealth newspaper in LeFlore County that 4,000 gallons of foam were used to extinguish the wreckage. The Lockheed C-130 Hercules is a four-engine turboprop aircraft primarily used for military transportation, according to the Lockheed Martin website. There were also several large explosions.
