Default Kalitta crash near Bogota

Although they're reporting it as Centurion, it looks like a Kalitta 747 crashing near Bogota this morning.

I think Kalitta Air flies as an ACMI for Centurion down there.

Really bad month or so for Kalitta - prayers to the crew.

Yes, they did and do.

Hell of a summer for the CKS operation. I hope all is well.

OK...I will maybe get thrashed for this, and thats ok. I also want to disclose that I am NOT normally a conspiracy nut and I know that it is waaay to early for speculation.

Two American cargo flights crash in Columbia within 24 hours. Given the events (hostage release - FARC setbacks over the last months) is it at all possible that terrorism could have played a part? One report I heard about the USA Jet deal was "engine problems", and the Kalitta plane was said to report an engine fire after take-off. Is there any possibility of some AA fire?

Bogota is at 8800' msl. Many many bad things can happen to you, taking off at that altitude.
