I saw an RAF pilot posted on it on facebook, he said something about a AFT CG???? i dunno what it mean or stands for......but he said once it stalls like that with that sort of weight onboard there would have been nothing that the pilots could have done to correct the situation......

Really is a terrible loss, and for what really?

I did hear that the load it was carrying had shifted to the rear causing it to stall. That ties in with the "AFT CG" comment which I assume means Aft Centre of Gravity

Makes sense, whoever didn't secure the load right is gonna get bollocked

From another source

" It was carrying 5 15ton armoured personnel carriers, the rolling floor anchors have a maximum loading of 10 tons and it's thought that extra anchoring was used. Speculation is saying that the vehicles might have broken loose at original rotation/climb and shunted backwards crushing the rear bulkhead and associated control systems"

That sort of mistakes shouldn't happen. That's why there is list after list to check double check and check again

I saw this yesterday.. Couldn't believe it. Amazing how such errors can occur in loading in this day and age, what with all the checks...

Well it would appear a mistake has happened buddy somewhere, the video is your proof...................

Just a waste of life, sons and daughters without fathers, wives without husbands ETC all due to a mistake!

This shouldn't happen in this day and age, but sadly it does

Saw this on documenting reality, pretty tame compared to some of the gore on there, but not good none the less.

I'm sure the AI's will get to the bottom of it.
