Default US-Bangla Airlines crashes in Nepal

Very sad news today that has shaken everyone in Bangladesh, condolences is pouring in for the 50 lives lost so far. The airlines is blaming the control tower on confusing their pilot , seems it's either the airport or the pilot who caused this crash

Sympathy for the family of those deceased and the others who were traumatized and seriously injured.

Just horrible.

non technical, natural disaster unrelated airplane accidents are hard to digest. Runway accidents shoudln't happen. Airplanes land on water, on car highway during emergency with effective communication...

With a heavy heart, (inna lillahi wa inna ilahi rajiun) two of my distant relatives were in that plane. They just got married (two weeks). May they rest in peace.

in the biggest airplane accident with the most fatalities(583), the two planes involved were not even off the ground. let that sink in

Very sorry to hear that Mijan Bhai. may Allah make it easy for your family


This is the conversation between the pilot and control tower

At the very outset of the tape, the control towers is heard warning the pilot, “I say again, do not proceed towards Runway 20.” And later, he is warned to remain on hold and not to land because there is another aircraft on approach. After the Bombardier has apparently taken a right orbit, the ATC asks the pilot whether he wants to land on Runway 02 or 20. The latter responds and says “We would like to land on 20”; he is cleared to land on that end of the runway.

The Bombardier pilot is then asked if he has the runway in sight, to which he replies, “Negative”. He is asked to turn right. But then immediately thereafter, the Flight 211 pilot says “Affirmative”, that the runway is in sight. At that point the pilot says, “Cleared to land Runaway 02” (even though he had sought permission for 20). However ATC too now clears him to land on Runway 02. Meanwhile, while talking to the Army 53 aircraft which is on hold about ten kilometers away, the ATC says that the Bangladesh aircraft is “on final for 20”.

The last recorded words of the US-Bangla pilot is: “[Unintelligeble ] said sir, are we cleared to land?” After some silence, the clearly alarmed ATC controller shouts, “I say again, turn…!”. There is silence for a while, then a ‘Fire One’ calls the tower, indicating that a crash has occurred and the airport fire tender has been activated

Very sorry to hear about your relatives, Mijan bhaiya.
May our Lord, Allah protect, bless and nurture their souls for eternity.
Our deepest condolences for their family and loved ones whom they left behind and for all the unfortunate deceased passengers of the aircraft.

RIP. My heart bleeds for the dead, injured and their families.

I have a feeling that investigation would reveal this to be a pilot error.
If there is any kind of failure in the aircraft than Bombardier engineers should also investigate into the matter.

Sorry to hear. May Allah grant them and the others who passed away so tragically a place in heaven easily.

Also among the injured, hope they recover physically and mentally

Inna lillahi wa Inna ilahi rajiun.

one of our classmate from university was on the plane with her husband. I think we graduated at the same time. different department though. Can't say we were friends but knew her by face. Both of them died.

Very sad news. Too many crashes happened this year. Bad year for aviation.

I still do not know if the crash has happened due to pilot error, but I am always hesitating and almost never flew Bangladesh airlines (govt or private) because I am doubtful of our professionalism and technical competence.

Very tragic news. Inna lillahi wa Inna Ilahi rajiun. My heart goes out to all the departed souls and their mourning families.

There are leaked radio conversation between ATC and the pilot on Youtube. Seems like there was lot of confusion re: the runway codes. Who came up with this brilliant idea of coding two runways 02 (South) and 20 (North)? Whoever is to blame, lives are lost, child lost parents, families are broken forever - nothing can fill that void.

Very sorry to hear about your classmate and her husband, dear Ahnaf.
May Allah give their family strength and give the departed souls eternal peace.

At the end, the runway was clear for landing from both ends. It was pilot's decision to choose an end. The end from which he tried to land the plane, reportedly was not very visible to him. Also there are no instrument landing system on this airport. The pilot therefore should have taken the safest approach, and that is, make another round and establish communication with ATC again for clear instruction for clearance to land from the end he was comfortable with.
