3 killed after small plane collides with helicopter in Nepal

A co-pilot and a policeman were killed on the spot when an aircraft of Summit Air with call sign 9N-AMH skidded off the runway and collided with a parked helicopter of Manang Air.

Aviation officials said that the cause of the accident was unclear.

The plane, operated by Summit Air, was not carrying passengers as it was trying to leave what is considered to be one of the world's most risky airports due to the shortness of its runway and its location surrounded by mountains.

They were flown to Kathmandu for medical treatment. The dead included a pilot of the plane and two police officers who were near the parked helicopter.

The injured were airlifted to Kathmandu by helicopter, Nepal police spokesman Uttam Raj Subedi said.

In 2008, another Twin Otter plane carrying 16 passengers and three crew crashed shortly before it was due to land at Lukla.

Hospital officials unload the body of a plane crash victim outside the Teaching Hospital in Kathmandu, Nepal, Sunday, April 14, 2019.

It's open only to helicopters and small fixed-wing aircraft and sits at 9,334 feet.

With the spring season tourist influx steadily increasing at the Mount Everest, many private Airline Aircraft like the ones involved in the incident, land and take off from the Lukla Airport which is touted as the 'Gateway to Mt. Everest'.
