Two Marines who grew up in the tri-state, and a third Marine who lived in NY, have been identified after they were killed earlier this week when their New York-based military plane crashed in Mississippi.

The search for additional victims is continuing.

Authorities said it had some sort of problem at cruise altitude, but an exact cause of the crash remains under investigation. It plunged into a soybean field at about 4 p.m. CDT on Monday in Mississippi's LeFlore County, about 100 miles north of Jackson, the state capital.

The fire chief of nearby Greenwood, Marcus Bank told to Green Commonwealth that the aircraft was scattered in a radius of 5 miles.

The Poughkeepsie Journal in NY said Marine reservists from the nearby Stewart Air National Guard Base were also on the plane.

The Marine Corps has yet to officially release the names of those killed due to a 24-hour waiting period after next of kin are notified.

The KC-130T United States United States Marine Corps is a multi-role, long-range, land-based tactical aircraft which provides logistic support and air-to-air refueling to fleet operating forces.

No foul play is suspected in the crash.

"They are looking at the debris and will be collecting information off of that to figure out what happened", Aranda said. It can be configured to refuel aircraft in midair in addition to being a general goal cargo and personnel transport.

Andy Jones said he was working on his family's catfish farm just before 4pm when he heard a boom and looked up to see the plane spiralling downwards with one engine smoking.

"He was thinking of looking into that, but he said, 'You know, I've got some time, '" Johnson said. "It was spinning down". The force of the crash almost flattened the plane, Jones said. "It sounded like a big thunderstorm", Nobile said. The aircraft was ferrying the team of Marine Raiders from an airfield in North Carolina to predeployment training in Yuma, Ariz., and was also carrying the group's small arms and accompanying ammunition.

Correction: This story has been corrected to show the couple lived in Newburgh, New York.
