A/C crashed near Khudaidad village in Ghazni province, 80 miles SW of Kabul during a heavy dust storm. The A/C was one of two making the flight from Kandahar to Bagram Airfield as part of a supply and transport mission. The severe dust storm contained winds of more than 45 knots that caused the pilots to lose outside visibility. The pilots were transitioning to instrument flight procedures when they became spatially disoriented and over-controlled the aircraft. http://www.chinook-helicopter.com/history/aircraft/D_Models/88-00100/88-0010 0.html
