(WJBK) -- Video posted to YouTube this afternoon claims to be footage of Monday's deadly plane crash at Bagram Airfield in Afghanistan.

THE VIDEO IN THIS STORY MAY BE DISTURBING TO SOME READERS.

Military sources in the Pentagon and in Afghanistan believe strongly that this video was taken by a service member driving security at Bagram Airfield.

The video taken from a dashboard camera manages to capture a 747 cargo plane that crashed shortly after takeoff on Monday.  All seven crew on board were killed.

These officials say they have no reason to believe this video is anything but authentic.

Six of the victims were from Michigan, including Brad Hasler, who graduated from Gabriel Richard High School in Riverview.

The plane was operated by National Airlines, which was based until recently at Michigan's Willow Run Airport before it moved to Florida in March.

The National Airlines president released a statement saying:

"This is a devastating loss for our family, and we'll work diligently with authorities to find the cause."

The Taliban claimed responsibility for the downing of the jet, but NATO indicates there had been no reports of insurgent activity in or around the base.
