Yeti Airlines suffers crash in Nepal
« on: October 08, 2008, 06:14:30 AM »
BBC news states a Yeti Airlines airplane crashed on landing at Lukla, Nepal....  with 18 fatalities.

Though it doesn't say, chances are it's a Twin Otter...

A photo of a T.O. departing from Lukla:

Don't make me come back there!!!!

Sad indeed, but that does look like a very dangerous place to fly, my condolences to the families :'( |:)\

I flew twice Yeti and they're not really in good shape the planes. I'm not sure they would be allowed to fly for US and EU standards....
I give that landing a 9 . . . on the Richter scale.

No, no, my point was just the OPPOSITE....

they paid him to fly around most of the globe (and I think it was a pretty hefty amount) just to have a proper look at their aircraft.....

Don't shoot me yet, mate!!!!!!!!!!    :P
