I know it's O/T, but it looks as if the aircraft might have pulled out of a dive a bit too tightly. Normally this wouldn't be an issue on a 130 as they're made for that kind of thing, but it was an old airframe and there may have been some fatigue which contributed to the incident.

Very sad to see, but the fact that they got it on film so well might see a clean resolution to the crash investigation and may end up improving operational safety for these aircraft in the future.
