GEORGIA -

Surveillance video has been released of a military plane moments before it crashed in Georgia, killing all nine people on board.

According to officials, something happened causing the pilot to lose control, going into a nose dive.

The plane, a C-130, was from Puerto Rico, but was in the Savannah area undergoing routine maintenance.

A crew was taking the aircraft to Arizona when it crashed near a highway.

"This airplane specifically participated in Hurricane Maria relief efforts,” says Ricardo Castrodad with the National Guard. “It was not involved in that type of mission at this time.”

The cause of the crash is still unknown.
