747 Crash Footage Analysis


In April 2013, a civilian-operated Boeing 747-400 crashed after taking off from Bagram Airfield in Afghanistan. The NTSB concluded that the cargo, five armored vehicles weighing over 80 tons total, shifted during take-off to the rear causing a massive imbalance to the aircraft's center of gravity. The aircraft, unable to gain altitude, stalled and impacted the ground in a fiery explosion.
