This video of the crash of a Boeing 747-400BCF operated by National Air Cargo emerged on the internet shortly after the accident happened on April 29th.
The National Air Cargo Boeing 747-400 freighter (N949CA) crashed on takeoff from Bagram Air Base, Afghanistan. As you can see in the video, the aircraft stalled and crashed from a low altitude and burst into flames. All seven crew members were killed in the accident.
Of course, the cause of the crash is still unknown. Speculations go from pilot error, to shifted cargo or wrong loading.
Before the airplane was converted to a freighter in 2010, it was in passenger service for Air France since it’s first flight in 1993.
