Straight out of an action movie. This jet was transporting a tank that wasn't anchored down properly. When the tank rolled it shifted the weight around and caused the jet to crash in a very explosive accident.
You know they were shitting there pants.
Add insult to injury not only did they have a loose tank running around but their tanks were full.
Moral to the story: Don't piss off the LoadMaster.
@xizang Its my understanding the Loadmaster was on the jet.
Tab A into slot B and when you dont get that right you're pretty well fucked.
There is a "Your Momma" joke in here somewhere.
Nope the details are off. That was my wife chasing a skittle across the floor on take off..
Lets go back and see what my Grandfather commented on this old repost.
When you allow Islamist in the process, the results shows.
old as fuck
That's exactly how the relationship with my ex went
I never saw this ....so Thanks, Dave G.
Afganistan Bagram Airbase, draw dawn phase, it wasn't tanks because tanks aren't really used in war anymore, it was a couple humvees, and some heavy ass reinforced cargo carriers. I beleive the equipment was going back to the US and the crew was all American. The load masters were Third party nationals, or in other words, dont work past 4 pm. The burn marks are still there. Disclaimer...this information is public.
my son had just shipped out for the states a few weeks pryor to this. he said the planes take off and when they leave the ground they pull back real hard and go up on a 50-55 degree angle to about 1500-2000 feet, before they leave the base that way assholes with RPG's can't shoot them down. he said its fun as hell and scary as hell to land and take off from bagram. he saw this video back then and said most likely he was over loaded and hit a head wind which caused him to climb to steep and stall. any way you look at it my bet is the cockpit was filled with shit from the pilot and copilot before they ever hit the ground.
FUCK IT !!! I'm driving to my next vacation
anyone know what the last thing to go through the pilots mind was???? oh shit we're gonna crash you don't joke about this kind of stuff
This 747 just picked up several sixteen ton MRAPs strapped down with, get this, wide ratcheting straps nothing else, a few of the had ripped and or broken before the plane even took off. Load shift and improper load securement is the cause of this MF" CRASH......
The big plane that couldn't.
someone forgot to pump gas into the jet.
@truckingman it was MRAPs, didnt want to spell it out, but they were sending a shit load back and its unfortunate they couldnt put them on ships
I am the guy who picks up this shit , all over Afghanistan, oh by the way Nationals are not allowed to have flight line badges. It was MRAPs
And one lazy fuck decided to take a shortcut. Contractor responsible for load securement was ITT systems. You crazyshits this is way old news. Find something better
Looks like a pilot ORT to check his loads like a truck driver then he would no for sure but I'm just a laman
@ouch Never go full R-Bomb.
I wonder if they were carrying a Moped?
yo mamma so fat she make plane fall
i was there when this happend HOLY SHIT
Scary thing to watch planes like that size go down.
