    Looks absolutely mental.

    Sadly all crew (7) was (obviously) lost. Never seen anything like it - must've been fairly horrible in those last few seconds. :[

    That's just ridiculous, like a nightmare. Doesn't even look real. What was the cause?

    It appears that the plane had stalled the way it just fell out the sky like that.

    That was climbing very steeply. Something heavy at the back?

    Telegraph says all crew were American, pilots and a Cargo Master. the plane was carrying vehicles and other routine cargo apparently.

    It clearly stalled in some manner or other. There was no way that was still in the flight envelope. If the engines had just lost power, or if airspeed was too low due to the pilot trying to climb too fast, you'd think they'd just drop the nose a bit. Instead it seems to loose all airspeed and seems to almost enter a flat spin. Very unusual indeed, and a horrible thing for the families of those involved to come to terms with.

    The world is going mad. Me? I'm doing fine.

    What a shit way to die.

    Yeah, just to concur with what's been said, I read that it was likely cargo slipping to the back, knocking the plane off balance, this imbalance (climbing too steeply) causes the plane to stall and the stall leads to the crash.

    In any case, it was a dreadful thing to watch, and I consider myself fairly thick skinned to these things. Reminds me of the famous video the B52 crash.

    I can think of worse ways. Would have been over in a flash.
    The actual death yes, but imagine the moments before the death. Even if it were only seconds, I don't think that counts for much when it must have been so indescribably terrifying.
