A/C crashed near Khudaidad village in
Ghazni province, 80 miles SW of Kabul
during a heavy dust storm. The A/C
was one of two making the flight from
Kandahar to Bagram Airfield as part of
a supply and transport mission. The
severe dust storm contained winds of
more than 45 knots that caused the
pilots to lose outside visibility. The
pilots were transitioning to instrument
flight procedures when they became
spatially disoriented and
over-controlled the aircraft.
