"We've confirmed nine people, consisting of five crew members and four additional passengers" were on board the plane, Puerto Rico National Guard spokesman Maj Paul Dahlen said. Georgia officials initially put the number at five; Puerto Rico officials said five to nine.

A United States military cargo place is engulfed in flames and smoke down after it crashed in Savannah, Georgia on 3 May, 2018.

A crew of nine Puerto Ricans were flying an Air National Guard C-130 into retirement in Arizona when it crashed onto a highway in Georgia on Wednesday, and authorities said there are no survivors.

The crash occurred at the intersection of Highway 21 at Crossgate Road.

The 156th Airlift Wing in Puerto Rico is home to the Bucaneros- 1,200 National Guardsmen and women are bilingual.

Georgia Air National Guard Capt Jeffrey Bezore said the deceased would be named upon notification of their next of kin. "Please avoid the area", Chatham EMA tweeted shortly after the incident.

"It didn't look like it nosedived, but it nearly looked like it stalled and just went nearly flat right there in the middle of the highway", Jones said, describing how people stopped and got out of their cars following the explosion.

"As far we know there were no cars hit in this crash, it is an absolute miracle at that time or day and that intersection", said Gena Bilbo, Public Information Officer at Effingham County Sheriff's Office, during a press conference.

Mark Jones was nearby when he says he saw the plane low in the air.

A formal investigation into the cause of the crash will take months.

In a tweet, President Trump said he was "briefed" on the crash and asked that people join him in "thoughts and prayers for the victims".

He said the C-130 plane had been used in the past to rescue US citizens stranded in the British Virgin Islands following Hurricane Irma and ferry supplies to the USA territory of Puerto Rico after Hurricane Maria a year ago.

A WC-130 is a weather reconnaissance aircraft used by the Air Force and Air National Guard.

A photograph released by the Savannah Professional Firefighters Association showed the tail of the plane, with an American flag on its vertical stabilizer, lying next to the road and engulfed by orange flames and black smoke.
