CNN reported the plane had just completed routine maintenance in GA.

Video sure looked like a stall.

The flight was also supposed to be the aircraft’s last, it was on its way to Arizona for decommissioning. Very sad.

I agree except that the video shows that the plane appeared to be in a shallow left bank from the start ever increasing into a full stall thus plenty of time to correct but did not, leaves me to the possible link of a control issue sense it had Just had maintenance done!

There is surveillance camera video from a business in the area that captured the final moments before the crash. The C-130 just rolled onto its side and nosedived. My best guess is asymmetric lift (flaps, either deployment or failure after deployment), something that couldn't be overcome with ailerons.

Consider the possibility of a prop pitch control problem. I e left side prop went flat or reversed, and would not feather, that would cause severe control issues.
