Monday a National Air Cargo Plane crashed near an Air Force base in Afghanistan. 7 American soldier were killed in the crash. 6 of the soldiers were from Michigan and the 7th was from Kentucky. The 747 began falling from the sky just seconds after taking off from the base. The civilian cargo plane was headed to Dubai, loaded with 5 MRAPs that each weighed 27,000 pounds. It isn't clear yet what caused the plane to crash.

The video of the plane crash has been all over the internet the last few days. When I watched it for the first time, my heart dropped as the plane fell to earth. I included the video below for you to watch, but be warned, it's a hard sight to see.
