Can’t believe what I am reading here... is CBS really suggesting it would be „cool“ if they use his video mentioning his name everywhere?

Reminds me a lot of the National 744F crash in Afghanistan.
2018 hasn't been very kind to aviation so far.

RIP to all involved.
The Twitter video reminds me of a video of a B-52 that crashed in the 80s/early 90s. I can't remember any details beyond that it was a B-52 and that it final moments looked very similar to this Herc's final moments.

Looking for pictures of the accident aircraft in her glory, I came across a picture of when the President and First Lady went to Puerto Rico to meet with the leaders in a press conference after the hurricanes, they sat under the wing of 65-0968 in the hangar...
Friend of mine watched the whole thing from liftoff. A few hundred feet off the deck, he saw the #1 prop feather and stop rotating. Pitch attitude remained the same until small roll started, then got exponentially worse until it rapidly departed to the left. He said it looked like a classic below Vmca event after engine failure.

The “Herc” has a hidden characteristic where a “finstall” can be induced by rapid opposite rudder kicks coupled with cross control of the ailerons. So if an outboard engine failed and the pilot put in too much rudder rapidly and then reversed his actions by going full in on the opposite rudder pedal. The results (under certain conditions) can be separation of laminar airflow from the vertical stabilizer causing the plane to behave like it doesn’t have a fin at all. That coupled with an outboard engine failure would result in rapid departure from controlled flight. Either that or the outboard engine when into reverse, in which case you are dead regardless.
