"Oh Shit!"

That is probably exactly what the pilot said too.

"In the video, the plane ascends before veering off course. Eventually the fuselage becomes nearly perpendicular to the ground and quickly plummets into the airfield. The crash claimed the lives of seven crew members, according to a spokesperson for the plane's carrier, National Air Cargo. It remains unclear how, exactly, the plane crashed. According to an updated press release on the carrier's website, the plane was transporting several vehicles to Dubai, United Arab Emirates":







"We still don't know much about the seven people who died when a cargo plane crashed Monday at Bagram Airfield in Afghanistan, but dashboard camera footage surfaced Tuesday morning on the website LiveLeak" .


H/T FARK for the link.

  1. The only things I've heard since this morning were that it looked like the aircraft stalled, and they think it could have been caused by cargo getting loose, sliding to the rear, and throwing the CG/balance of the aircraft way off.

  2. That was the first thing that came to mind watching it.
    The cargo broke loose and went aft and that was all she wrote.
