AFGHANISTAN – The crash of a U.S. civilian cargo plane at Bagram Air Field north of Kabul, Afghanistan was caught on camera on Monday.

Seven Americans died in the wreck.

It appears some cargo in the hold of the plane, a Boeing 747, shifted during takeoff.

That threw off the civilian plane’s center of gravity, it appears to stall and then crashes to the ground.

The date stamp on the video indicates something other than April 29 but sources indicate the video was indeed shot on Monday.
