The Boeing 747, which had taken off from Bagram airbase near the Afghan capital Kabul destined for Dubai, exploded in flames after crashing to earth on Monday. All seven people on board all of whom were American citizens were killed. The video footage, filmed by what appears to be a camera on the dashboard of a vehicle driving nearby, shows the plane gaining altitude and then twist, plummeting to earth. It is then engulfed in flames.

Warning the video is graphic.
