national air cargo 747-400 crash n afghanistan

Recommended Posts

latest reports say that the crew radioed a possible cargo shift, if it shifted toward the aft of the plane it would raise the nose and stall the plane. if that was the cause, the pilots never had a chance to recover

Looks like the pilot fought to correct it all the way to the end.

 

It appears to look like that, but there was really nothing he could do. I don't see much movement in the stabilizers, but adrenaline may have kicked in, hard to tell. Once a plane gets into a stall, both that close to the ground and that big, there is no way to avoid a crash unless you make a water landing. Sad he didn't make it though.
