At least three killed in Summit Air plane crash at Lukla airport”

Assistant Sub-Inspector Rudra Bahadur Shrestha, who was injured in the crash and airlifted to Kathmandu, died while undergoing treatment at Grande Hospital, the paper said, citing hospital sources.

Three persons have been killed when a Summit Air plane taking-off for Kathmandu slipped on the tarmac and hit a Manang Air parked at the Lukla Airport Sunday morning.

The incident took place as the aircraft lost control on the runway while preparing to take off and hit two parked helicopters.

"Another police officer died in a hospital in Kathmandu".

The plane crash at the Tenzing-Hillary airport in Nepal left three people dead, injuring four others.

Both airlines are private companies serving locals and tourists in the remote areas of Nepal.

A civil administrator, Narendra Kumar Rana, said the four passengers and a flight attendant on the plane were safe.

Tenzing-Hillary Airport is known as the gateway to Everest and is regarded the world's most unsafe because of its hard approach and short runway.

Lukla airport is used by thousands of trekkers and climbers heading for the Everest region each year.

The Twin Otter aircraft crashed into the helicopter at Tenzing Hillary Airport at Lukla, known as the gateway to the world's highest mountain, 125 km (78 miles) northeast of capital Kathmandu. It sits at an elevation of 9,334 feet (2,845 meters).

Seven people, including the country's tourism minister, were killed in February when a helicopter crashed in the hilly east.
