    The C-130 "birdie" itself is very reliable.
    But everything heavier than air tends to the earth ...
    There are many possible reasons.
    In general, apparently, people were very unlucky ... Very ...
    Now for many days, journalists will write about the search for their sacred "black boxes".

      All the same, let's hope for the best. There are many examples in the history of saving people who have crashed in aircraft accidents, and in similar conditions as well.

        I would like to...
        But the Drake Passage, the "roaring forties" and the proximity of Antarctica practically leave no chances for survivors of the plane crash to survive in the water until rescue.
        Again, the loss of communication hints at the rapid development of the accident.

          If for several hours there was no connection, then the hope that someone survived was close to zero.

          On HF / VHF, there could have been no passage. But if they didn’t even contact via satellite, then a really emergency situation developed within tens of seconds. Then the options beg:
          -short circuit / fire with blackouts;
          - loss of crew consciousness during cabin decompression;
          -complete destruction of the structure in the air;

        And how many of them were shot down?
        Super-duper-highly reliable transporter gets off at a time!
        And will we add reliability statistics?

        According to the Aviation Safety Network website, as of March 15, 2019, a total of 239 An-12 aircraft for 1250 produced were lost as a result of accidents and serious accidents. And sho?
        It is necessary to look at the number of lost total flight hours of the entire mass. Then the statistics will be more correct.
        The S-130 has been in operation for a very long time, and the number of flight hours is very large.

        Well, I don’t know, it would be closer to me, so that only the USA and Canada in all of America would be developed capitalist countries. And Latin America must be poor, backward, agrarian. The natural order of things is such that the United States must reign supreme over the entire Western Hemisphere, that is, half the planet. So it was before the war, so it should be after - once and for all.

          At one time, no not Chile - Argentina was one of the most prosperous countries in the world. True, it was 100 years ago. Now this is a country of approximately our level, with some reservations. He lived there (in Argentina) for several years - a "white" civilized country, and by no means a banana republic.

    That’s really a pity, people flew to their shift, but did not fly. ((Incidentally, 17 crew members are embarrassed, this is not an AWACS plane.

      There could be a replacement crew on board. Perhaps some crews were given "transportation" on an unfamiliar route. Simple practice.
