Wasn't sure if this was suppose to be in the U.S. and Americas section since it was an Army plane or in the Middle East section, but here it is.

A 747 U.S. cargo plane crashed on its ascent from Bagram, Afghanistan Monday, killing all 7 American crew members aboard. The exact cause of the crash is not known, but thunderstorms were in the area.

The plane, in route to Dubai (United Arab Emirates), was carrying 5 military vehicles according to the Aviation Herald.

Here is dramatic footage of the crash captured by a dashcam.

It looks like it stalled.  What a horrifying way to go.... may they rest in peace.

Read speculation that cargo shifted to the back throwing of the center of gravity.

Not nice for the families of the Crew either,to see their loved ones die in this way.

It was very eerie seeing a jumbo jet vertical and appearing to just float and wobble in the air like that.

It's also possible that they climbed to steep. I know that in those bases you have to get high fast. We wont know what the cause was until they recover the black box.

Could a jet like that get vertical so fast without trying real hard to do it? I find it hard to believe that they would even have the function to allow such a position.

No expert but no pilot would even TRY to climb that steep in such an aircraft.  It does look like a load shift.  If that was the case then the loadmaster paid for his mistake with his life.  Awful....

Apparently the Taliban are trying to claim responsibility,but according to the authorities there hasn't been any Taliban activity in that area for some time.

I wouldn't think that he would try which leads me to believe it was a load shift. Didn't read the op but what I read last night says all weather reports said the air was fairly calm so that rules out some intense updraft.

Unless they snuck in and cut the cargo straps and nobody noticed all they could've done was shoot it down and nothing in the video remotely suggests that.

I can't believe that it took the guy so long to say "oh f---".
