A small Nepalese cargo plane today crashed in a mountainous district, killing both the pilots onboard the aircraft mostly used for flying food and other supplies to remote regions.
The bodies of the two pilots have been brought to Kathmandu. There were no other passengers in the ill-fated aircraft, police said.
The bodies were brought on board a Simrik Air helicopter at around 1 pm, said Simrik Air staffer Kamal Gautam.
The aircraft took off from Surkhet Airport early today and was scheduled to land at 6:55 am in Simikot.
The freight transporter aircraft was discovered wrecked and fragmented into three parts in Ekalbajkharka at around 11:00 am, a Nepalese media report said.
The plane was mostly used for flying food and other supplies in the mountainous region.
