I've heard that aircraft try to gain as much altitude as possible, immediately after take off, to avoid shoulder fired rockets ..... it appears the pilots mis-calculated their assent angle (climbed too aggressively) ... Not enough altitude to dive and gain airspeed and not enough thrust to power out of it.
That must have been a sickening feeling .... how tragic.

Steep climb, then went into a stall. Not enough altitude and speed to recover the stall..... :02:

It looks like it was a load shift on roll-out.
As the plane accelerated and then lifted its nose, the cargo slid toward the tail of the aircraft, shifting the balance. It stalled and there wasn't enough altitude to recover.

Sad.

Cargo pilots don't try and climb like that after takeoff (I've been in a few and watched even more take off), something went wrong. The cargo could have been not properly secured down and shifted during takeoff and caused the back end of the plane to have an excessive amount of weight.

Steve,
Steve, I'll bet you're right-- payload wasn't tied down correctly, shifted aft and we see the results. Only other non-pilot possibility can be a control surface failure, something busted in the elevator system causing max deviation. (ValueJet jack-screw in Miami) A/C seemed under FULL power, all 4 doing the best they can. "No Win" situation, they did they best they could.
