Nepal-aviation-accident Two dead in Nepal plane crash Kathmandu, May 16, 2018 (AFP) - Two people died after a cargo plane crashed in Nepal during bad weather Wednesday, the latest aviation accident in the impoverished Himalayan nation. The Makalu Air flight lost contact moments after takeoff and crashed into a hillside not far from its destination in the remote northwestern district of Humla. The wreckage was found scattered across a mountain at an altitude of 3,900 metres (12,800 feet). "Bodies of both the pilot and co-pilot have been recovered from the crash site," district chief Madhav Prasad Dhungana told AFP. "We believe it missed the route and crashed into a hillside, probably because of bad weather." Nepal has a poor road network and many remote mountain communities rely on planes and helicopters to bring in basic goods. But the country has a dismal safety record, which is largely blamed on inadequate maintenance and poor management. Nepal-based airlines are banned from flying in European Union airspace because of safety concerns. In March, 51 people were killed when a passenger plane from Bangladesh crashed at Kathmandu airport, the country's deadliest accident in more than two decades. Last month a Malaysian jet carrying 139 people aborted a takeoff and skidded into a muddy verge at the same airport, causing chaos and long delays. No one was hurt. str-pm/as/np/gle/sm
