It is believed this freighter was carrying military vehicles. On take-off, possibly due to incorrect restraining of the vehicles, the load shifted to the rear of the aircraft to such an extent that the pilots were unable to lower the nose and avoid a stall. At such a low altitude and speed they had no chance to recover and fell like a stone.
Such a shame.
