This CNN link below is an update on the National Cargo Boeing 747-400F that crashed at Bagram Air Base, Afghanistan back in February 2013

It only crashed a month ago. Still quick progress, I don't think it will take long to determine what happened.
|Quoting Flyer732 (Reply 5):|
I believe the FAA has issued a directive saying no freight on the 747's over 20,000 lbs per piece
|Quoting Goldenshield (Reply 8):|
If the picture posted in the first thread last month shows a how a vehicle is typically strapped down, then the total weight of that vehicle would have to be WELL over 20,000 lbs. before the either the straps, tie-down rings, or their support structure fail from overstress. Those straps alone are good for upwards of about 1,500 lbs., and there was a good number of them on the front-end alone.
