The 747 is one of my favorite planes. Last Monday, 29th April, a National Airlines 747-400 (registration N949CA) crashed shortly after take off from a refueling stop at Bagram Airfield in Afghanistan. All seven on board perished. The Taliban claimed responsibility but it looks to me more like the plane stalled just after take off. A camera captured the extraordinary crash (NB video is disturbing and contains “bad” language) RIP to the crew of National Airlines flight 102. Related Posts “Damn it, we’re going to crash” AF447
