Nepal plane crash

According to the Aviation Safety Network, "A thunderstorm was passing the airport with cumulonimbus clouds passing by at 2,500 feet".

"We are yet to ascertain the reason behind the unusual landing", he said.

In the recording, posted by air traffic monitoring website liveatc.net, the pilot and the tower shifted back and forth about whether the pilot should approach the runway from the north or the south. The airline has blamed the air traffic control, but the airport says the plane approached from the wrong direction, reported BBC.

The tower then told the pilot his alignment was not correct, but there was no reply, Chettri added.

Although he clarified that it is still early to determine the cause of the accident, the head of the Civil Aviation Authority of Nepal, Sanjiv Gautam, hinted at a technical failure. Other sources said the aircraft was 17 years old.

The nationalities of those on board were later identified; there were 33 Nepalese, 32 Bangladeshis and one Chinese and Maldivian national, apart from four crew members.

She said her daughter, Tammana, flew from her lap during impact and that she has not seen her since. "We are very saddened by it", he said.

All flights in and out of the TIA were cancelled. Everyone just froze looking at it.

At least 12 bodies have been recovered, according to an AP journalist who arrived at the scene soon after the crash and saw the US-Bangla Airlines plane broken into several large pieces, with dozens of firefighters and rescue workers clustered around the wreckage.

He is asked to turn right, but immediately after that, the Flight 211 pilot says "Affirmative", that the runway is in sight.
