How in the hell did the guy filming that not scream "HOLY FUCKING SHIT!!!!"
'Aye, The Hot Pants'
More like "HOLY FUCKING SHIT THAT'S AWESOME!"
I need to get on this dashboard cam craze that the rest of the world seems to be on. And yes, i know they are for insurance reasons.
I live at the other end of the runway.
What the fuck did he do to the poor dog? Bastard!
With large aircraft like that carrying such heavy loads, proper weight and balance is literally the difference between safely reaching your destination and falling out of the sky. Like someone said, it sounds like the cargo shifted to the rear of the plane, completly altering the angle of attack necessary to continue a safe climb. The air basically just stopped flowing over the wings, which is why it looked like it was suspended there briefly before tumbling downward. That's easily the most ridiculous fucking stall I've ever seen. Even if they were another thousand feet higher that would probably be impossible to recover from.
