OMG. I read in the news that a Buddha Air mountain flight crashed while arriving back in Kathmandu from a tour of Mt Everest and the Himalayas. Everyone died in the crash. I’m shocked because I took a mountain flight earlier this year in May. It might not have been exactly the same plane that crashed though, because I remember that Buddha Air had 3 planes that went on mountain flights each hour in the morning. Thank God the weather was good on the day of my mountain flight too, cuz apparently bad conditions make it difficult for the small planes to have a smooth flight.
I was able to take a video of the whole Mountain Flight experience, and I’m posting the photos and videos here. Again, the plane I was in might not have been exactly this same plane, although the news report said that the co-pilot was female. The co-pilot on my flight was female too, though maybe there are a lot of female pilots in Nepal. Hearing about the crash was sad, but it just makes me appreciate the whole Mt Everest experience more.
