Deadly Afghan Plane Crash Caught By Dash Cam In This Horrifying Video

A Boeing 747 cargo plane crashed just after takeoff from Bagram Air Force Base in Afghanistan yesterday. There were eight crew members on board, and none of them survived. The entire crash was captured on the dash cam of an approaching vehicle. This is terrifying.


It sounds like a shifting cargo load in the civilian-operated plane may have caused it to stall during takeoff. Seeing a plane basically stopped in mid-air for a few brief seconds is an almost surreal experience. It actually looks like the film is frozen.

Once the forward momentum of the plane is gone, it literally just falls out of the sky and explodes when it hits the ground. The people on board had no chance.




Aaaaand this is why I don't take planes. Sinking boat? I can do a decent doggy paddle. Train derailment or car crash? There's a chance I can walk away. Plane falling from the fucking sky? All I can probably do is eeek out an "aaw shi..." and that, my friends, is not enough for me.
