US-Bangla Airlines crash: Did communication gap bring down aircraft? Pilot-ATC confusion must be probed

Posted in: 13th Mar, 2018 Post Category: Blog Blog of Nepal

Kathmandu: The crash of the US-Bangla Airlines flight BS211, that killed 51 people on Monday near Tribhuvan International Airport in Nepal’s capital city Kathmandu, raises questions that must be scrutinised and studied by the established investigation committee. A passenger on the ill-fated flight, Annie Almun, says, “I remember the plane breaking into two. We saw a crack and my husband asked me to jump. I did so. My two-year-old daughter held onto my husband. I just want to know what happened to them.” She is in the Kathmandu Medical Hospital and undergoing a surgery on her right hand.

The names of her husband, well-known photographer from Bangladesh, FH Priok, and daughter, Tamarra, cannot be found on the treatment list issued at the press conference by the Civil Aviation Authority of Nepal (CAAN). Priok’s brother and his wife, Mehadi Hasan and Shworna, who were on the same flight, have undergone operations and are out of danger. They, however, still are unconscious.
