Bagram Plane Crash Video Hits the Web

By: Sean Patterson - April 30, 2013

On Monday, a Boeing 747-400 civillian cargo plane crashed during takeoff at Bagram Air Base in Afghanistan. According to a report from The Aviation Herald, the plane was carrying five military vehicles bound for Dubai. The seven crew members on board the flight died during the fiery crash.

Now, as morbid as it may be, a video of the plane crash has hit the web. It shows what the U.S. military has already stated – that the crash was not due to combat. The footage, which is from the dashboard camera of a nearby vehicle, shows that the plane’s nose was somehow pitched too high, resulting in the horrific crash. No official cause for the crash has yet been released.
