After a horrific video of a plane crash in Afghanistan made headlines worldwide, CNN launched an impromptu investigation questioning the reason behind the crash.

The video shows the Boeing 747-400 jet idly stalling in the air before slowly diving nose-first into the ground and exploding into flames.

Pilot, engineer and partner with the New York-based law firm Soberman & Rosenberg, Arthur Rosenberg, told CNN that one of the possible causes could have been too much cargo in the rear of the plane. However, no cause has yet been confirmed--including speculations of Taliban involvement.

Seven Americans reportedly died in the crash, with six hailing from Michigan and one from Kentucky.
