Dashboard camera video shows the Boeing 747, operated by National Air Cargo, crash just after take off from Bagram Air Base in Afghanistan last Monday.

Tuesday morning, we learned the plane was recently here at the Reno-Tahoe International Airport.

An airport official confirmed the plane was parked here briefly, but couldn't provide any other details.

The National Transportation Safety Board is now investigating the crash that killed seven people on board.

Our weekend meteorologist Jeff Thompson took a few photos of a National plane at the Reno airport a few weeks ago. While we believe this is the same plane that crashed, we've received no official confirmation saying so.
