Confusion within the cockpit of the U.S. -Bangla Airline plane may have been the primary cause of Monday's accident, which took the lives of dozens and will clearly make an impact on the tourism sector of a country that is gradually emerging from political turmoil.
An airport official said the US-Bangla Airlines passenger plane crashed as it landed at Kathmandu airport. "There could be a technical issue but we are yet to ascertain the reason behind the unusual landing", an Indian English language daily quoted Gautam.
The flight is asked if the runway is in sight, to which the pilot replies, "Negative".
"It should have come straight but it went in the other direction. then it crashed towards the field", said airport cleaner Sushil Chaudhary, who saw the crash.
Authorities are still investigating why the aircraft attempted to land from the other side of the airport.
It was not immediately clear if there were fatalities.
One survivor said at the hospital that the plane shook and there was a loud bang afterwards.
"I was anxious it would hit another aircraft, but the pilot pulled the plane up. I have received injuries to my head and legs but I am fortunate that I survived the ordeal", as reported by The Kathmandu Post.
