Dash camera captures dramatic cargo plane crash

DRAMATIC footage has surfaced of the moment a civilian cargo plane crashed shortly after take-off at Afghanistan's Bagram airfield on Monday.

The footage, taken from a dashboard-mounted camera inside a car driving alongside the airbase, captures the moment the US-based National Air Cargo company flight drops out of the sky and slams into the ground, killing all seven crew members on board.

The aircraft, said to be carrying five military vehicles, rose to 1200 feet before its nose rose sharply and then appeared to stall. It then plummeted to the ground, erupting into a massive fire ball.

The Taliban claimed responsibility for the crash, however a Nato spokesperson said there was no insurgent activity in the area at the time.
