In this video posted by a local news portal shikharnews.com on Tuesday shows the flight of US-Bangla Airlines flying very low (at least 200 feet from ground), prior to the crash, at Gagalphedi- around 18 km (road distance) North-East of Tribhuvan International Airport, Kathmandu.
The video shows it nearly crashed at a hill. At this point the passenger on board the aircraft, before the crash, said they saw tree and bushes from the window. The video shows the aircraft making a tilt prior to gaining altitude with white light visible from the wing tip that illuminate the terrain.
Locals were heard saying-- "The aircraft has lost its way. It is flying. It is flying. Which airlines is this? It looks like a new plane."
The video shows that the aircraft had extended the landing gear down indicating that it was preparing to land.Published: 2018-03-15 13:19:31
