Summary: While en route, the crew of the cargo plan sent a unintelligible mayday message. The plane went into a near vertical dive and disintegrated on impact with the ground. The PC ,while flying at night, one Inertial Reference Unit failed and suddenly the instruments for the pilot flying showed the plane pitching steeply up, which he tried to correct. Due to the plane's unusual attitude, the instruments went into a "declutter" mode, which among other things removed the indication that the two pilots' instruments were conflicting.
