This dramatic crash of a Boeing-747 cargo jet was captured as it took off from Bagram Air Base in Afghanistan on April 29.
The boeing 747 was a cargo jet and was operated by National Air Cargo. The 747 was en-route from Bagram to Dubai.
The take off starts smoothly and then something happens and the aircraft looks like it is struggling, stall-like, and then the aircraft enters an unrecoverable attitude and loses altitude crashing moments later.
An investigation is underway into the crash which occurred shortly after take-off, with observers on the ground saying that a shift in the cargo load of five military vehicles appeared to have taken place.
All 7 onboard the 747 are believed to have died in the crash.
