I know a gentleman at work who is type rated in both the C-130 and PBY's that they use for fighting fires. He will have insights into the accident, but I'll wait some time since he undoubtably knew the victims.

My bet is on metal fatiuge.

For a partial replay of how flames spread when a C-130 wing is ripped off look for the footage online of the C-130 that was modified to rescue the Iranian Hostages....

Look at the video under Operation "Credible Sport" on the linked page here..
