    How one stays silent while watching a scene like that unfold is amazing to me.


    I too feel terrible for the crew's families.

    I'm shocked at how fast it came down...I would be mortified watching this in real life.

    Default US tanker plane 'crashes in Kyrgyzstan after take off'

    A US military cargo plane has crashed after taking off from an airbase in Kyrgyzstan, local reports say.

    The aircraft came down near the village of Chaldovar, about 160km (100 miles) west of the US Transit Center at Manas, the Kyrgyz emergencies ministry said.

    Officials said the plane had broken into three pieces but information about casualties has yet to be released.

    Seven crew members died when a US civilian cargo plane crashed at Bagram airbase in Afghanistan on Monday.

    Witnesses of the Kyrgyzstan crash told local media that they had seen an explosion and heard a boom.

    The US military uses the Manas airbase to maintain its operations in Afghanistan.

    The transport plane was carrying a cargo of fuel when it disappeared off the radar near Chaldovar, close to the border with Kazakhstan, the Reuters news agency reported.

    Rescue services went to the scene, a spokesman for the emergency situations ministry said.

    However, local media reported that fire engines were struggling to reach the wreckage due to the mountainous terrain.
