The plane that crashed at the international airport of the capital of Nepal, Kathmandu, went to land on the wrong side. This was reported by the head of the air harbor Rajkumar Chhetri (Rajkumar Chhetri), reports The Kathmandu Post. According to him, dispatchers allowed the aircraft to land from the south, but the plane took a course to land from the north. At the same time, the pilot said that the crew is all right. Then, instead of landing from the north, the plane made two laps and turned to land from the northeast. On a new dispatcher question the commander again noted that he was all right and that he was ready for landing. To the remark that the position of the aircraft is not suitable for this, there was no answer, Chhetri said. As a result, the plane flew directly over the command and control tower when landing. “He touched the ground next to a parked plane, struck a fence on the east side of the airport and fell into a place where it was a little lower,” the man said and added that the aircraft had not miraculously caught the airplane standing on the airfield. After the incident, the plane was on a football field and caught fire. The fire was quickly extinguished. On board there were 71 people – 67 passengers and 4 crew members. From the wreckage managed to get 22 survivors, they are in the hospital. Another 49 people were killed. The fallen liner belongs to the Bangladeshi airline US-Bangla Airlines. It has been operating since 2014 and operates on Bombardier and Boeing aircraft. The crashed aircraft is a 17-year-old Bombardier DHC-8 modification of the Q-400 (board number S2-AGU). He was flying BS211 from the capital of Bangladesh, Dhaka. More important news in the Telegram channel «The ribbon of the day» . Subscribe!
