9 dead from plane that crashed while landing in Nepal

US-Bangla Dash 8 Q400

The passenger plane carrying 71 people from Bangladesh crashed and burst into flames as it landed Monday in Kathmandu, Nepal's capital, killing dozens of people, officials said.

Forty-nine people have died and 22 others were injured after a US-Bangla Airlines passenger plane crashed at Kathmandu's global airport on Monday.

"Forty people died at the spot and nine died at two hospitals in Kathmandu", police spokesman Manoj Neupane told AFP, adding another 22 were being treated in hospital, some in a critical condition.

General Manager Rajkumar Chhetri said the US-Bangla plane crashed at Kathmandu airport due to missed approach.

The director general of the Civil Aviation Authority of Nepal was quoted as saying by local media that the aircraft was given permission to land from the southern side but it landed from the northern side. All flights in and out of the Tribhuvan International Airport were cancelled.

An airport spokesperson told the Kathmandu Post there are fears of casualties.

We extend our prayers today to the Immaculate Heart of Mary community and to all her friends and loved ones", he continued. Archbishop Gomez released a statement saying Holzman had served the church "with dedication and love for many years".

US-Bangla Airlines' Asif, however, said that wrong signals might have led to the crash.

Basanta Bohora, a Nepalese and one of the few passengers to escape with injuries in the deadly plane crash, said he is lucky to be alive.

"Our pilot is an instructor of this Bombardier aircraft".

Twenty-three people were killed when a Twin Otter plane crashed on a mountainside in western Nepal.

Amanda Summers, a retired American living in Kathmandu, told CNN she saw the crash of flight BS 211 from her rooftop overlooking the airport.

Meanwhile, Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli expressed his condolences to the families of those that have lost their lives in the incident and wished speedy recovery for the survivors under treatment.

Cleveland switched from a 3-4 defensive scheme to a 4-3 last season, and Shelton was not playing over the center as in the past. The trade gives Shelton new scenery under head coach Bill Belichick that will help him re-establish his career.

Of the 67 passengers, 32 were from Bangladesh, 33 were from Nepal, one was from China and another was from the Maldives.

In March 2015, a Turkish Airlines flight crash-landed at Nepal's only worldwide airport with no casualties. After a normal take-off from Dhaka, the plane began to behave strangely as it approached Kathmandu, he said.

The most recent crash at the airport causing fatalities was in 2012, when a Sita Air turboprop plane carrying trekkers to Mount Everest hit a bird and crashed after takeoff.

Nepal's poor air safety record has been blamed largely on inadequate maintenance, inexperienced pilots and substandard management.

US-Bangla Airlines has been operating since 2014 out of its home airport in Bangladesh.
