747 stall on take off, resulting in disaster United Kingdom
I thought I would post this video, as, regardless of size, it shows what happens when you stall your aircraft on take off.
'Several observers on the ground reported the National Air Cargo Boeing 747-400 had just lifted off and was climbing through approximately 1200 feet when it''s nose sharply rose, the aircraft appeared to have stalled and came down erupting in a blaze.
According to a listener on frequency the crew reported the aircraft stalled due to a possible load shift.
Apparently, the strappings holding down the load came loose or broke, changing the center of gravity significantly, causing the stall.
Was this pilot error?
is it the pilots responsibility to ensure the load is properly secure?
I know what I think, but you can decide for yourself.
The aircraft was carrying 5 military vehicles.'
