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.
