Bangladesh aircraft crashes in Kathmandu

Kathmandu Airport Nepal

Eyewitnesses report that the plane seemed to struggle during the descent, and seems to have either overshot the runway or missed it altogether.

Several people were rescued from the burning wreckage of the Bombardier Q400 series aircraft and are undergoing treatment at hospitals, army spokesman Gokul Bhandari said.

According to Spokesperson of the Nepal Police, Deputy Inspector General (DIG) Manoj Neupaney 49 people were killed in the crash while 22 people are now undergoing treatment at various hospitals in the capital city. The dead included a newly married Bangladeshi couple on their honeymoon.

The pilot entered runway from opposite side to one for which he had received permission, as stated by Director-General of Nepal Civil Aviation Authority, Najiv Gautam. Moments later, the controller comes back on, using a tone rarely heard in such conversations - perhaps even panic - and tells the pilot: "I say again, turn!"

The twin-propeller Bombardier Dash 8 aircraft was carrying 67 passengers and four crew members.

Among those taken to KMC hospital, 8 were pronounced dead upon their arrival, including 3 Bangladeshis, three Nepali nationals and two with unidentified nationalities.

Airline spokesman Kamrul Islam said 33 of the passengers were Nepali, 32 were Bangladeshi, one each from China and the Maldives. Local media reported some of the Nepalese passengers were college students returning from a holiday. A survivor, Nepalese travel agent Basanta Bohora, described from his hospital bed what he experienced.

The plane was then seen making two rounds in a northeast direction, Chettri said.

"I was seated near the window and was able to break out of the window", he said.

There is silence for a while, then a "Fire One" calls the tower, indicating that a crash has occurred and the airport fire tender has been activated.

"We are collecting details", TIA General Manager Raj Kumar Chhetri said.

"This was main reason behind the accident", he said.

US-Bangla Airlines' Asif, however, said that wrong signals might have led to the crash.

Nepali rescue workers gather around the debris of an airplane that crashed near the global airport in Kathmandu on March 12, 2018. I thought at first that maybe it was extra cloud cover that was forcing the plane to fly low. "Everyone just froze looking at it".

"For a few minutes no-one could believe what was happening. It was just awful". While visiting the spot, the prime minister vowed to launch a probe into the incident. She also wished early recovery of the injured, he added. It commenced operations with domestic flights on 17 July 2014.
