Something happened in the cockpit. I expect some Allah Akbar action on the recorder.

I haven’t flown in 15 years and if I never do again it won’t be anytime too soon.

"The crew were heard on VHF air-band frequency reporting that some of the load of five heavy military vehicles in the cargo hold had shifted and the aircraft stalled."

My son’s friend is at Bagram Air Base as an Air Force loadmaster. I wonder if something shifted or it was loaded wrong in the first place.

You have to tie that stuff in the back down before takeoff!

RIP all. Prayers for them and their families.

Looks like the center of gravity was too far aft. Either the load shifted aft or it just wasn’t loaded correctly.

Looks intentional from what I could see!
The pilot pulled her straight up and held it until it stalled, rolled over and crashed.
Muzzie pilot?

Civilian crew, most of them from the Michigan area. I don’t think any are muslim, but it’s worth checking.
