Killed In Plane Crash

Crash The passenger flight from Dhaka Bangladesh landed in Kathmandu Nepal but ended up careening off the runway and crashing in a nearby field

At least 50 people were killed when a Bangladeshi passenger plane crashed and burst into flames Monday as it landed at Kathmandu airport in Nepal, a police official said.

The pilot on a US-Bangla Airlines flight that crashed at Nepal's main airport, killing 49 of the 71 people aboard, was apparently confused about which direction the plane should use to approach the runway.

Police spokesman Manoj Neupane said on Tuesday that 49 people were confirmed to have been killed and 22 injured. It is now known that 33 of the passengers were Nepalis, 32 were Bangladeshi, one was Chinese and one was from the Maldives.

Bombardier is a twin-engine, medium-range and turboprop aircraft.

Even as the Bombardier aircraft is on approach, the Nepali pilots of other aircraft are heard warning the ATC that the US-Bangla pilot seems disoriented, according to the Nepali Times. "We are collecting details", TIA General Manager Raj Kumar Chhetri said.

Lubos Michiel ( PAOK sports director) told the referee Giorgos Kominis, "you are finished", according to Agence-France Presse. The match was officially abandoned two hours later and it was reported the referee had reversed his decision .

Numerous bodies on the tarmac were charred, witnesses said.

An Army spokesman said the death toll could be at least 50. Several bodies that lay on the tarmac, covered with yellow cloth, were charred.

He said the plane was "out of control" when it attempted to land on the runway. Sources told The Indian Express that this was a result of some confusion between the Air Control tower and the pilot, who veered on an unusual route while trying land - North to South instead of South to North.

"A three-minute conversation between the pilot and the air traffic control before the landing indicated that they sent wrong signal to the pilot", he told reporters in Dhaka.

"We are not accusing anyone now".
