747 Crash Caught On Dash Cam

Bagram Airfield Crash 29 APR 2013

An American-owned Boeing[masked] operated by National Air Cargo crashed on takeoff from Bagram Air Base in Afghanistan Monday killing all seven people aboard. Dash cam video shows the aircraft climbing before it apparently pitches up and stalls. The pilot appears to have initiated a recovery but runs out of altitude and the aircraft pancakes in a huge fireball. Various theories on the cause of the crash have been advanced but so far the only one backed up with evidence is that weather might have played a role.

Thunderstorms and major wind shear were recorded in the area about the time of the crash and skies look stormy in the video. Another theory gaining traction is that the cargo might have shifted. The aircraft was reportedly carrying five army trucks.

Warning: The video is graphic and my disturb some readers
