Lockheed C-130 Hercules transport plane was destroyed by impact and fire when it crashed shortly after takeoff from the airstrip at the Sharara oil field in Libya. One of the four crew members survived the accident.
The aircraft was chartered by Akakus Oil and had delivered 18 tonnes of catering and maintenance supplies.

Several websites suggest that the aircraft involved was 5A-DOM. This has not been officially confirmed. Also, a photo was posted on Facebook which purportedly shows the aircraft prior to departure from Sharara Airstrip. This Libyan Air Force C-130 is seen parked on a platform in the desert and does not resemble 5A-DOM.
