Tara Air DHC-6 Twin Otter 300 plane crash
The de Havilland DHC-6-300 Twin Otter operated by Tara Air took off from Pokhara, Nepal, to Jomsom, Nepal. 19 passengers and 3 crewmembers were onboard. The plane was on approach on Jomsom airport, about 16 NM south of Jomsom and at 13,000 ft when it crashed in a mountainous area. The aircraft has been pulverised. All the 22 people onboard were killed.
The approach to Jomsom airport is going through a valley and requires the plane to be flown accurately. At the time of the accident, some clouds were covering the valley.
