Dramatic footage: Cargo Boeing 747 crashes at Bagram Airfield

Published on Apr 30, 2013

A civilian cargo aircraft crashed at Bagram Air Field near the Afghan capital Kabul on Monday, killing all seven people aboard. The plane came down shortly after take-off and crashed within the boundaries of the US-run airbase, a NATO spokesperson at the base said. The Taliban quickly claimed responsibility for the crash, but the coalition dismissed the claim as “false” in a statement to AP. The cause of the crash is being investigated by emergency crews, but no sign of insurgent activity in the area was spotted at the time, the statement added.

Horrifying to watch especially knowing that the people inside were killed instantly. Reports say that seven crew members died. May they RIP.
