Not much info yet, but it's not a NATO plane.

KABUL, Afghanistan – A cargo plane crashed into mountains east of Afghanistan's capital Kabul on Tuesday, an Afghan airport official said.
The plane with a nine-member crew was flying from Bagram Air Field when it went down 7 miles (11 kilometers) east of the capital, Kabul Airport Director Yaqob Rasoli told The Associated Press.
No information was immediately available on the fate of the crew, he said.
The aircraft was carrying supplies for NATO forces in the country, Rasoli said.
Bagram, which lies north of Kabul, is the main U.S. military base in Afghanistan.
Weather conditions were clear Tuesday evening and the cause of the crash wasn't immediately clear.
In May, a passenger plane operated by Pamir Airways, a private Afghan airline, crashed while traveling from Kunduz in northern Afghanistan to the capital. All 44 passengers on the plane died.

Ok, sorry for the confusion. As usual media reacted to soon, with too little detail, as did I.

I would assume "crew" does not necessarily mean flight crew. In many places like Afghanistan, with less developed facilities and air fields, many cargo planes may be required to carry along any crew that would be needed to load/unload the cargo on either end. For example, 2-3 flight crew + 6 loading/ground crew. Just an idea...

A colleague of mine recently had to take a cargo plane to travel from Northern Afghanistan back to Kabul. Eventually, some passengers were on board.

Swedish media claims it was a National Air Cargo Herc, flying from Bagram to Kabul.
8 people on board, 6 Filipino, 1 Indian and 1 Kenyan.

TransAfrik contracted by National. National website shows at least one Herc painted in the latest National colors.

Thanks. Just indicating it was civil rather than military.

National/Transafrik are unlucky. They wrecked another one in June.
