All MAFFS grounded after C-130 crash in South Dakota

After a C-130 crashed while fighting fires yesterday evening, the U.S. military has now grounded other aircraft supporting the fire fighting in the area.

Pentagon spokesperson Captain John Kirby says that the 7 additional C-130s airplanes equipped with Modular Airborne Fire Fighting System have been grounded. No word on how long the planes will be kept from fighting the raging fires.

The cause of Sunday's crash in southwestern South Dakota remains under investigation.
