    National Air Cargo 744 Crash at Bagram

    A National Air Cargo possibly carrying as many as 8 crew onboard has crashed on takeoff from Bagram Air Force Base with no survivors. The Afghan goverment has already came out denying that any sort of attack occured resulting in this crash, according to the images being posted on another site, it appears that the airplane crashed very close to the airport, possibly still on it's property. As of now, the registration of the airplane is undetermined.

    It was N949CA one of the ex Air France birds. This seems to be an odd crash

    Its not just you, Mark. As significant as the whole Jason Collins thing was yesterday, seeing so many stories and videos about that while this event was not even mentioned bothered me a bit. Sure it may have happened half a world away, but this was a US based carrier serving US interests overseas and with what was likely a crew made up mostly of Americans, and it doesn't even get a sentence written about it in the mainstream media.

    It was a cargo aircraft, with just a small crew on board, crashing in a far away place. I wouldn't expect the news to spend much time talking about it. If you're not an airplane enthusiast, or otherwise connected to it, I suspect if you wouldn't be spending much time thinking about it either.

    It was briefly mentioned on CNN.com and the other news sites, but quickly forgotten about.
