The massive C-130 airplane that crashed at Santa Barbara Airport last summer was disassembled on Tuesday to be trucked away. 

On August 25, the plane made an emergency landing, crashed, and caught fire at 10:13 p.m. There were seven people on board, all of them escaped the plane without injuries.

The airplane is a C-130 Hercules owned by International Air Response and is typically used for disaster relief, including oil spills.

In October, the National Traffic Safety Board (NTSB) released a statement citing system failures as a reason for the crash.
