US Bangla flight BS211 crashes in Nepal

Kathmandu Airport Nepal

"We are trying to bring the fire under control", airport spokesman Birendra Prasad Shrestha said.

The plane in the Nepal crash has been identified as the Q400 turboprop, which is built in Toronto, and a Challenger business jet in the Iranian crash. "All of a sudden there was a blast and then another blast".

In February 2016, 23 people were killed when a small plane crashed on a mountainside in western Nepal.

Separate rescue teams of Nepal Police and Nepal Army were deployed to carry out rescue operations immediately after the crash.

The plane had circled Tribhuvan International Airport twice as it waited for clearance to land, Mohammed Selim, the airline's manager in Kathmandu, told Dhaka-based Somoy TV by telephone.

Mark Masluch, director of communications and public affairs for Bombardier, said more than 1,000 Challenger 600 series planes have been delivered and that they are "one of the most robust and reliable aircrafts in business aviation".

The official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because of airport policy, said the flight was arriving from Dhaka, Bangladesh.

Todays accident is deadliest since September 1992 when all 167 people aboard a Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) plane were killed when it crashed near the Kathmandu airport.

German giants Eon and RWE strike major deal, move closer together
RWE is being advised by Bank of America Merrill Lynch and Citi on the deal, E.ON has hired Perella Weinberg Partners and BNP. Chief executive Peter Terium resigned late previous year in the wake of a profit warning leaving Uwe Tigges as interim CEO.

Although he clarified that it is still early to determine the cause of the accident, the head of the Civil Aviation Authority of Nepal, Sanjiv Gautam, hinted at a technical failure.

The plane can carry more than 70 passengers and firefighters have been battling a blaze at the scene.

The BBC reports that a total of 67 passengers were on-board the plane.

"I saw the plane make a sharp turn over the terminal back towards south and then disappeared towards the runway".

In 2012, a plane carrying trekkers to Mount Everest region hit a bird and crashed in Kathmandu, killing all on board.

In July 2016, the airline announced plans to phase in its first two Boeing 737-800 aircraft in September of the same year and to subsequently launched new global routes, for example to Singapore and Dubai by the end of 2016.

The Q-400 has sustained several landing gear incidents over the years but this is just the second crash of the aircraft resulting in death.

Two days later, two pilots of another plane were killed in a crash, underscoring the poor air safety record blamed on hard mountain terrain and lack of maintenance of the aircraft.
