Dash-Cam Captures Shocking Boeing 747 Crash in Afghanistan [Graphic]

Footage from a dashboard camera of Monday’s horrifying airplane crash at the Bagram Airfield in Afghanistan that claimed the lives of seven American crew members, has surfaced online.

Fox Detroit reported that according to military sources in the Pentagon and in Afghanistan, the video was most likely shot by a service member driving security at Bagram Airfield, which could explain how calm the driver is after witnessing the crash.

In the video, the Boeing 747 cargo plane that was transporting vehicles, is seen ascending but then it slowly starts to veer of course before it quickly plunges into the ground.

The airplane’s carrier, National Air Cargo, issued the following press statement about the accident on its website:

“A National Airlines B747-400 cargo plane was involved in an accident at Bagram Airbase in Afghanistan today.

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.

“Safety is always our top priority at National Airlines,” said National Airlines President Glen Joerger. “This is a devastating loss for our family and we’ll work diligently with authorities to find the cause,” said Joerger. “Most importantly, our thoughts and prayers are with our crewmembers and their families.”

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.”

We should warn you that some readers might find the video footage from the dash-cam extremely upsetting.
