Détails:
A Dornier Do 228-101 passenger plane, 9N-AHE, was destroyed when it crashed hillside near Bastipur, Nepal. All fourteen on board were killed.
Agni Air flight AG-101 departed at 07:04 on a domestic flight from Kathmandu (KTM) to Lukla (LUA), Nepal. At 07:18, the flight crew received reports that clouds were closing in on Lukla. It was decided to return to Kathmandu.
Two minutes later AG-101 acknowledged instructions to maintain an altitude of 12,000 ft and follow a 20-mile arc to the south to make an instrument approach to Kathmandu. Shortly afterwards the captain indicated a generator malfunction but did not declare an emergency. He was in contact with a company flight on the ground at Kathmandu and reported trying to switch to the backup generator. This did not work and he then tried to 'recycle' the battery pack.
A diversion to Simara Airport (VNSI) was impossible because that airport was closed because of bad weather.
The pilot attempted to fly a visual approach to Kathmandu runway 02. Last radar contact was at 07:25. The crash site is located at a hillside near Bastipur (Shikharpur VDC, Narayani Zone of Makwanpur District), about 18nm south-south-west of Kathmandu and at an altitude of 9,000 ft.
