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 sustained fatal injuries. The precise circumstances are unclear.
Unconfirmed news reports suggest that the aircraft hit a pine tree before landing. Photos from the scene show the aircraft came to rest on a steep rocky and wooded downslope, next to the airport perimeter fence.
