That is UNBELIEVABLE wow! Im no NTSB person but it looks like the elevator stuck or malfunctioned. That's the only reason a plane like that would climb out and stall like that .Reminds me of this footage where the elevator stuck. Very Sad.

It said the the plane was transporting several vehicles to Dubai, United Arab Emirates: Maybe the load broke loose during take off and shifted the CG back and caused a stall.

Almost for sure that the load shifted.

Very sad. All 8 crew perished.

my buddy is Air force and was working the flight line when it happened and it was definitely a load shift... Scary **** for sure.
