Video May Show 747 Jet’s Last Seconds Before Bagram Crash

May 1st, 2013 § 0 comments

NPR has what appears to be footage of the recent plane crash at Bagram Airfield in Afghanistan. It is certainly the most gut wrenching plane crash video I have ever seen. Curious about the steep climb that lead to the power-on stall I checked out the comments to see if there were any decent theories. Some wondered about specific take off requirements for that runway but the consensus seem to be that the cargo broke loose.

Commenter Rick S:

I think the cargo probably shifted. Something must have broke loose as the jet was climbing, shifting the center of gravity at a critical stage of flight. Once that happened, those people didn’t stand a chance.
