We’ve seen devastating car accidents and other catastrophes, but none so quite bizarre as the latest plane crash caught on video.
A U.S. cargo plane crashed in Afghanistan Monday, and the devastating crash was caught on a dash camera. The crew that was lost in the crash included six members from Michigan and one from Kentucky, according to the Washington Post. The plane took off normally, but when it began to fail it did not nose dive, but eerily fell out of the sky.
“The 747 was bound for Dubai, carrying equipment as part of the U.S. military’s drawdown from Afghanistan. The civilian cargo plane was loaded with five MRAPs, each weighing about 27,000 pounds.” –channel 5 KSDK
There hasn’t been a declaration of why the plane fell from the sky just yet, but we do know that too much cargo aboard singer and actor, Aaliyah’s plane back in 2001, was the cause of the crash that took her and her crews lives.
“The Dubai-bound Boeing 747-400 — operated by National Air Cargo — crashed just after takeoff Monday from Bagram Air Base around 11:20 a.m. local time, the National Transportation Safety Board said in a statement Tuesday.”
One of the crew, Brad Hasler, was just married one week ago and has a baby on the way.
Watch the report below, but be warned it may be disturbing for some.
