Default 747 Jet Crash in Afghanistan (Video)

7 American citizens were on board this cargo jet, all losing their life. Appears to have been loose cargo issue of some sort.

Disturbing video, if you choose:

The pilot was fighting that thing hard. Just so much weight and so much momentum.

That was my job while I was in the Air Force Reserve was logistics, Air Transportation Craftsman. It is almost impossible for the pallets in a 747 to move, something had to have shifted on the pallets to do that. Lost for words about this.

Not watching that.

I fly to much and I don't want to watch good men die.

I can only imagine how upset the load crew is.

I saw this earlier today. Truly one of the most shocking videos I've seen. Like others have said, the thoughts going thru those peoples minds at the time must have been sheer terror. The video is more mentally disturbing than visually (for those choosing not to watch), just knowing that the crew died in just a blink of an eye.

Apparently there were a bunch of military vehicles and other heavy equipment that shifted to the back of the plane due to being poorly secured and was 100% impossible from recovering. Thought's and prayers are with their loved ones. And you know the crew responsible for that must feel horrible... but it is their mistake. I couldn't imagine such a guilt ridden conscience.

Definitely a stall. The only part about flying that freaks me out is takeoff. All that dead weight man..

Definitely looks like his cargo shifted on him. Looks like he was climbing fine and then things went bad quickly. The pilot was trying his hardest to pull it up though.

Okay... Y'all made me curious so I had to click. That is so scary. I saw a small plane crash and burn before my eyes when I was 7. I'm 33 now, and I still haven't flown.

You can definitely tell he tried saving it, but when the plane started to roll that was all she wrote. Its sad knowing it happened. The worst part is that it was preventable. That is what gets me about stuff like this.

Wonder if the loadmaster was at fault or if the cargo shifted on accident?

No way with kind of weight (humvees, etc) and that much fuel (it was Dubai-bound). They didn't stand a chance once it stalled and couldn't lift. Most airplane accidents occur on takeoff and landing fwiw. This one clearly applies.
