Bangladeshi plane crashes in Nepal, kills at least 50

The plane, operated by US-Bangla Airlines, was on a flight from Dhaka when it hit the hill-ringed airport fence and burst into flames and came to rest in a field near the tarmac of Tribhuvan International Airport.

As per the reports, total, 50 dead bodies have been recovered so far. Several people have been rescued from the burning wreckage of the Bombardier Q400 series aircraft but nine people were still unaccounted for.

An eyewitness said that the airplane was on fire and rescuers were actively working on the spot, as he shared his experience of witnessing such tragic incident.

The Bangladeshi carrier had launched operations in July 2014 and operates Bombardier and Boeing aircraft.

Mountainous Nepal has had a poor air safety record. Small aircraft ply an extensive domestic network and often run into trouble at remote airstrips. A Thai Airways flight from Bangkok had crashed while trying to land in Kathmandu in 1992 killing all on board.
