Flyer Captures on Facebook Live Sudden Screams, Massive Fire in Nepal

A smartphone found from the wreckage of the Yeti Airlines flight that crashed in Nepal today appears to have filmed the jet’s last, extremely distressing minutes. The twin-engine ATR 72 plane from Kathmandu, carrying 72 people, crashed just before landing in Pokhara, a popular tourist destination in the Himalayan country. At least 68 persons were killed.
The video, which has gone viral on social media, begins with pictures of people inside the plane and the city below seen through the window as the jet circles before landing. The ground footage had documented the flight’s progress as it began to land. The jet immediately tipped to the left, flipped upside down, and then erupted into a ball of fire, according to sources.
Five Indian passengers were on board, all of them were from Ghazipur, Uttar Pradesh. Sonu Jaiswal, one of them, was supposedly performing a Facebook Live immediately before the plane crashed. He is no longer alive. The identical video may be viewed on his unconfirmed Facebook account.
Abhishek Pratap Shah, a former Nepali MP and Central Committee member of the Nepali Congress, who submitted the video footage, said he received it from a friend and rescued it today from the debris.
It was supplied by one of my pals, who got it from a police officer. It’s a true record. “Today’s footage was taken as the plane was ready to land,” Mr Shah explained in an exclusive interview.
The hunt for the plane’s black box, which is likely to offer light on the causes of the disaster, is set to resume tomorrow. Pokhara is merely a 25-minute flight from Kathmandu, the Himalayan country’s capital.
Recently, there have been multiple plane disasters in Nepal, raising concerns regarding safety and training of flying crew. Nepal has been on the European Union’s air safety blacklist since 2013. After the International Civil Aviation Organization raised safety concerns, all planes from Nepal were barred from entering EU airspace.
“This aircraft is the best we have in Nepal, and it is used by all of the main airlines “Mr. Shah went on to say. Because Pokhara is a tourist destination, the government has to “upgrade our aviation system, our planes, our data system, and our pilots,” he said. “Nepal is going through a difficult era,” says the current administration, “and I believe the present administration is sincere about this.” “He went on.
