    that should have been one of the important topics, that is surprising. 8 lives were lost.

    If 8 Americans were killed in a car crash in South America, would anyone here post about it?

    The timestamp is wrong, but this looks like legitimate video of the crash (viewer discretion advised)

    That is just insane.
    It's hard to take chances but sometimes it's better if you do

    Unbelievable that someone was able to capture the crash. Watching it and knowing the outcome sent shivers throughout my body.

    It looks like the cargo broke loose and went aft on rotation changing the center of gravity so far aft they entered an uncontrolled pitch up stalling the aircraft.
    The three most common expressions in aviation are, "Why is it doing that?", "Where are we?" and "Oh Crap".

    Wow. Just incredible.
    And I, I took the path less traveled by
    and that has made all the difference......yet...
    I have a feeling a handle of people are going to be very interested in what I post in the near future.

    Video is back up.

    Saw this earlier today, and literally sat there with my mouth open in horror. I have witnessed a near crash before due to a stall like this, but this was just shockingly tragic. Personally, I don't think it has any place out here on the internet, but that is a whole separate conversation...

    This..

    As for why it didn't get any play on the news. The 24 hour news cycle doesn't work that way, if it isn't terrorism, a domestic pax carrier that crashed in the US they have no need for it.

    Let's see if the news media has a need for it now that there are graphic visuals that can "boost the ratings". Unfortunately, it's always about the ratings.
