Most On Crashed Plane From Bangladesh, Nepal

Nepalese rescuers stand near a passenger plane from Bangladesh that crashed at the airport in Kathmandu Nepal

According to officials and witnesses, the plane swerved erratically and flew dangerously low before it crashed and erupted in flames.

Reports say the plane got out of control, ploughing through the airport fence on to a football field. "Looks like they are really confused", said another man. "In our preliminary findings, the aircraft might have sustained some technical glitches but we are yet to ascertain the reason behind the unusual landing".

Seconds later, the controller orders fire trucks onto the runway.

The official, speaking on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to talk to the media, said 10 people remained unaccounted for in Monday's crash.

"The airplane was not properly aligned with the runway".

It is Nepal s only global airport and experts say the mountainous landscape with the towering Himalayas to the north poses difficulties for pilots coming in to land.

However, US-Bangla Airlines chief executive Imran Asif blamed Kathmandu air traffic control.

"Captain Abid Sultan has survived the accident".

"Every aircraft - while landing - has to maintain clearance from the mountain, and as soon as the pilot passes the mountain he has to do a very quick descent".

The injured are being treated at the Kathmandu Medical College, Teaching Hospital in Sinamangal.

The Post quotes Nepal Police Spokesperson DIG Manoj Neupane as saying 22 injured passengers were undergoing treatment at various hospitals in Kathmandu.

An Army spokesman said the death toll could be at least 50. By late Tuesday morning, four bodies had been identified.

The ill-fated plane had the Nepali passengers, who had gone to Bangladesh to participate in a summit of tour and travels operator. Their bodies were not among those at the hospital, she had learned.

Nepal's government has ordered an investigation into the crash.

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

Fire crews put out the flames quickly, perhaps within a minute, she said, though for a time clouds of thick, dark smoke rose into the sky above the city.

The 67 passengers on board included 32 Bangladeshis, 33 Nepalese, a Chinese and a Maldivian.

The two pilots and two cabin crew were Bangladeshi nationals, airline spokesman Kamrul Islam said in Dhaka.

Ila Rajbhandari, an official at the US-Bangla Airlines office in Kathmandu, told Kyodo News that the plane is a 76-seater Bombardier Dash 8, a twin-engine turboprop.
