You will find the black boxes of the plane that crashed in Nepal

According to Prem Nath Thakur, spokesperson for Kathmandu Tribhuvan International Airport, operators removed the black boxes from the plane this morning shortly after rescue operations resumed as they tried to locate the bodies of the last missing passengers.

This finding will help clarify the causes of the incident, as technical information such as the aircraft’s route, speed, altitude and engine status will be recorded in the boxes, as will audio recordings from the cockpit.

Authorities removed the bodies of 68 people on board the plane at the time of the crash as it attempted to land from Kathmandu to Pokhara International Airport.

However, the bodies of the other four people believed to have fallen into a deep valley near the crash site have yet to be found.

According to the Nepal Civil Aviation Authority, the passengers included 53 Nepalese, five Indians, four Russians, an Irishman, an Australian, an Argentinian, two Koreans and a Frenchman.

Delivery of the identified bodies to their families began on Monday after the autopsy, while the bodies of foreigners are expected to be transferred to the capital.

Following the incident, the Nepalese government has declared a day of national mourning this Monday in memory of the victims.

This is the country’s second aviation accident in less than a year after a Tara Air Company plane crashed in the city of Jomsom on May 29, killing all 22 passengers on board.

This number of accidents in Nepal has resulted in the country being subject to international sanctions for lack of control, and the European Union banned Nepalese airlines from entering its territory in 2013.

More than 900 people have died in such crashes since November 1960, when the country’s first plane crash occurred, according to the Nepal Civil Aviation Authority.
