On April 29th 2013 a Cargo Boeing 747-400F aircraft crashed in Afghanistan shortly after departure. There were 7 people on board the airplane; a Captain, First Officer, Relief Captain, Load Master, and two Mechanics. Sadly all the people on board the airplane passed away. The cause of the crash was improper loading. The plane had 80 tons of military vehicles inside it. One of the vehicles wasn’t secured properly and came loose mid-flight and rolled to the back of the airplane. This significantly changed the center of gravity of the airplane and caused it to stall just a little over 1000 feet over the airport. The plane crashed within the Bagram Airfield premises in Afghanistan.
The airline was National Airlines and the callsign was Flight 102.

Rest in Peace to the 7 crew members on board that tragic flight.
