He called the back-to-back crashes an "unfortunate coincidence". "It was just bad".

"The airplane was not properly aligned with the runway". "When control tower asked the pilot if there was any problem, the pilot said everything is okay".

Nepali authorities say the plane had an unusual landing while the airline says it was the air traffic control's fault.

Chettri said that moments after the plane received permission to land, the pilot said he wanted to go in a northern direction. The authorities also told a news conference the pilot descended from a route opposite to the one assigned by air traffic controllers. There were no reports of injuries. The fire at the accident site has now been controlled and the airport officials, as well as Nepalese army, have been pressed into the evacuation process.

Andrew Blackie, an aviation consultant, pilot and former accident investigator for the British government, said investigators will be looking into all aspects of the crash, such as mechanical failure, weather and operational error. Hundreds of people stood on a nearby hill, staring down at what remained of the propeller plane.
