Beschrijving:
A Let L-410UVP-E20 operated by Summit Air was destroyed in an accident when it attempted to land on runway 06 at Lukla-Tenzing-Hillary Airport in Nepal. The aircraft operated on a cargo flight from Katmandu with a crew of three. The captain and copilot both sustained fatal injuries.
An airport CCTV recording, the aircraft can be seen descending through the clouds. It then gains altitude, possibly in an attempt to go around. The aircraft then lost altitude in a nose-up attitude and impacted steep rocky and wooded terrain, three metres below the runway threshold level.
