US Cargo Plane Crash In Afghanistan At Bagram Airfield Crash, April 29th 2013 [VIDEO]
There's been tons of videos posted on Youtube about a civilian cargo plane crash at Bagram Air Field north of Kabul in Afghanistan that has killed seven (7) people. It's such a clear video and so perfectly filmed, you would almost think it's fake, but I don't think there's anything fake about this! According to MSN, it turns out to have been a US cargo plane! Warning! The Above Video Footage Is Graphic! Click At Your Own Risk!
There's not much about it at the moment the details are pretty sketchy, MSN simply reports this:
"A U.S. cargo plane crashed as it was taking off from Bagram Airbase near Kabul, Afghanistan, on Monday, killing all seven crew members.
A dashcam video surfaced on LiveLeak.com Tuesday showing a plane tipping upward and then crashing near a highway as traffic passed by. A social authentication site, Storyful, geolocated the video to the Afghanistan crash site. News organizations have not yet authenticated the video."
So if I'm reading the quote above correctly, the video is not yet authenticated, will this turn out to be a horrible hoax? What kind of a of sick mind does that?
We'll wait for verification of the video and let you know what's up with that. AP should have something soon, I checked there's no release of this yet.
But when I did more searching, The Atlantic Wire already has tons of information on this, so I'm not sure about the MSN post or the lack of release by the Associated Press.
I pray for the families that were aboard this plane because hoax or not, that's a terrible thing to put a person through, a family member through!
Here's what I caught on the Atlantic Wire:
"At approximately 7 a.m. EST, National Flight NCR102 from Bagram to Dubai, UAE with seven crewmembers on board crashed on takeoff. None of the crew members survived. This was a purely cargo flight and no passengers were aboard. Cargo consisted of vehicles and routine general cargo.
National will release additional information as it becomes available, in cooperation with government authorities. Our focus at this time is on the family members of those we've lost, and on assisting the NTSB and Afghanistan Civil Aviation Authority in their investigations. As of now, the cause of the accident is unknown."
They seem to have a hook up of some sort, so I'll keep a close eye on these guys especially for details about the plane crash.
