    It's crazy the way it crashed. Looks like something was pulling it down, as if it was tied to a string...

    You won't believe this but the day before I read the news about that crash, I had a dream of a plane crashing close to me.
    Just right when I woke up, I usually take a hot drink and read the news on the pc.

    Cargo was not properly tied down. When the plane took off the cargo shifted towards the back pushing the nose up, which caused the CG to be disproportionate. This caused the plane to stall. At that altitude there was nothing any pilot in the world could've done. Very sad.

    I've had a similar experience in the past, so I somewhat know how you feel. These days I'm not sure though, sometimes I feel like maybe I didn't really have the dream...

    Indeed. I saw this on the TV and the same thing was said.

    lol, I watched that quite a while ago, the first few parts were good but then it got quite ridiculous when someone could tell what's gonna happen.

    That was a classic wing drop into an incipient spin caused by a stall because of load shift. If the load moves and goes to far aft, the aircraft becomes unstable and uncontrollable. Loaded correctly an aircraft is like a big "seesaw" and has to be in balance. If you put a fat bloke on one end of a seesaw you know what happens...need I explain more??
