The end came with a bang

After pilots crash landed this C-130 in Iraq on the 7thof July, a U.S. Air Force explosive ordnance disposal team break it into little pieces and take it away.

The aircraft was disabled after it made an emergency landing last month, and the airmen used a series of controlled detonations to divide the aircraft into smaller pieces so it could be moved. The disposalmen are assigned to the 447th Air Expeditionary Group. U.S. Air Force photo by Tech. Sgt. Jeffrey Allen
