I do not think a meteor was a contributing factor.

Maybe it collided with a Gloster Meteor.

Concur that it LOOKS like some sort of left side power loss and speed decay. Thinking there’s likely a radio call that isn’t in the headlines yet.

Aviation Week (free account required):
A pilot’s mistakes, a maintenance crew’s failures and an overall “culture and climate of complacency” are cited as causal factors in a new U.S. Air Force investigation report on a WC-130H crash earlier this year that killed all eight crewmembers.

Less than 2 min. after taking off (...), the Puerto Rico Air National Guard pilot caused the 156th Airlift Wing aircraft to stall and crash by commanding a leftward yaw while already banking left at low speed despite the failure of the outboard engine on the left wing (...)

Although the rudder input was the primary cause, the 52-page AAIB report documented a long list of errors and deficiencies that led to the fatal crash on what should have been an uneventful flight to retire the 53-year-old aircraft in the Arizona desert.

The AAIB investigating an accident of a military US airplane that happened in US soil?

Poor reporting, it's not AAIB, it's just AIB. Well, USAFAIB, to be real accurate.
