Plane Crash Kills 7 in Afghanistan
(KUTV) Seven people, all Americans, were killed in a fiery plane crash in Afghanistan.
They were flying a 7-47 that went down near Bagram Air Force Base.
The crash was caught on camera--the video is disturbing. The video appears to show the cargo plane attempting to take off from the base about 40 miles north of Kabul. As it tries to climb, the aircraft suddenly stalls and loses altitude, crashing in a ball of fire.
All seven crew members on-board were killed.
Six of the victims were from Michigan and one was from Kentucky.
The accident is now being investigated by Afghan authorities with the help of the NTSB.
