Explosion rips TIA airplane OAKLAND, Calif. (UPI) Two maintenance men died Tuesday night in an explosion which ripped off a wing of a Trans International Airways' cargo plane during refueling operations, scattering debris hundreds of feet. Authorities said the accident occurred outside a hangar at Oakland International Airport while the plane, an L383 transport which is the civilian version of the C130 turboprop military craft, was being refueled and its engines inspected. The inboard port engine suddenly blew up, spewing burning fuel over the plane's left wing, Oakland Fire Department batallion chief Jim Carlin said. One witness said the force of the blast lifted the plane's nose off the ground. The victims, Michael Munoz, 45, and Gary Bokanich, 18, were neighbors in the south San Francisco Bay community of San Lorenzo. One of them apparently was atop the fuselage at the time of the blast. His body was found on the charred stub of the wing. The other was found on the ground nearby. Eight more workers inside' the plane at the time of the explosion were badly shaken but otherwise unhurt.
