New Dehli - An Indian Air Force C-130J Hercules cargo plane crashed Friday during a routine training mission, killing all five crew members on board, an air force spokesman said.
The plane went down 115 kilometers (72 miles) west of Gwalior air base in central India, said Group Capt. Gerard Galway.
It was not immediately clear what caused the crash. The air force ordered an inquiry, Galway said.
India had bought six C-130J aircraft at a cost of $1.1 billion three years ago. They were recently inducted into the air force.
