This article is about a recent air crash where a US Bangla air craft crashed during landing in TIA (Tribhuvan International Airport) Kathmandu, Nepal. Though the real summary is still under investigation, I have tried my best to figure out what might have caused the incident which resulted in more than 50 human casualties.

US Bangla Air Crash at Kathmandu

Whenever there is an air fatality questions and rumors starts to flow from all the directions. It’s the family members, who have lost their beloved ones who really want to know what really caused that incident. Was it a human error or some sort of mechanical error?

As far as US Bangla air crash is concerned this is not the first time that the Bombardier Dash 7 Q400 had problems during landing. In the year 2007 three incidents took place where in all three cases the summary was give as Landing Gear Failure.

Scandinavian Airlines Flight 1209, Scandinavian Airlines Fight 2748 and Scandinavian Airlines Flight 2867 which were all Bombardier Dash 7 Q400 models had landing gear failures and as a result of which NTSC {National Transportation Security Board) grounded all Bombardier Dash 7 Q400 models. The same aircraft had an incident when it skidded of the runway in Saidpur in 2007. Though there were no human casualities and the aircraft started it’s service few hours after minor maintenance.

The US Bangla flight 211 was a scheduled flight from Shahjalal International Airport, Dhaka to TIA (Tribhuwan International Airport, Kathmandu). On 12th of March, 2018 the aircraft crashed while landing and burst into flames. Among the 62 passenger’s which included 4 crew members, 52 peoples lost their lives while the remaining survived with minor injuries. The final investigation report is yet to be released but it is believed that communication error between ATC (Air Traffic Control) and crew members led to the incident. Rumors of the captain being on stress as he had earlier flown the same aircraft for 14 long hours prior to taking off from Shahjalal Airport for Kathmandu is also being heard.

It might take some time for the final investigation report to be released but this incident is a wake up call for how big a human casualties can occur only because of a single miscommunication or a pilot being on stress and not being able to take the ultimate decision while landing.
