Romanian plane crashes, Alabama partnered with Romania

A Romanian aircraft crashed near the Black Sea during a military training mission on Monday.

According to the BBC, the Antonov AN-2, a military plane, was carrying paratroopers for training, but crashed shortly after takeoff.

BBC reported that 10 were killed and the three survivors had jumped out before the crash.

Romanian is partnered with the Alabama National Guard through the State Partnership for Peace Program.

Members of the Alabama Guard and the state government routinely travel to Romania and teams of Romanians come here to learn about military, government and other programs.

The SPP program evolved from the Partners for Peace program established in the early 1990s and was furthered by a 1993 decision to send reserve soldiers and airmen to the Baltic region. At that time, military officials said it would appear less aggressive to the new Russian Federation, according to an information paper from the National Guard Bureau.

The program continued when the NGB paired state national guards with Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania.

Romania and Alabama have been partners since 1994 and the program now includes 56 partnerships.

During the partnership, Romania has been accepted into NATO and the European Union.

My Photo

I grew up in the military. Mom was an Air Force nurse for a few years, dad was a navigator on B-52s, among other things. One grandfather served in World War II, uncle is retired Navy, other grandfather and great-uncle served in Korea and a cousin is currently serving in the Marine Corps. Currently, I'm the military reporter for the Great Falls Tribune in Montana. Previously, 

As a military kids, we moved all over. As an adult, I've traveled all over and moved for work. But now, I'm putting down roots in Montana with my boyfriend. We just bought a house and are slowly but surely making it our home. We have more land that we know what to do with at the moment. Now we're getting a garden started, tearing down walls and having loads of fun at what we call the Homestead.

In a part life, I did PR for the guy who built the Vietnam Veterans Memorial on the National Mall, social media for the National Museum of Health and Medicine, before that, edited two military technology magazines for a publishing group in the DC area and before that, I was the military reporter (among other things) at the Montgomery Advertiser, covering Maxwell Air Force Base, the Alabama National Guard, veterans and anything else military related in the area. And in between all of that, I leave town, preferably the country, whenever possible. It all started when I spent a semester in New Zealand.
