Yeti Airlines at Lukla crash
« on: October 08, 2008, 02:11:48 PM »
Just read in a german newspaper http://wz-newsline.de/index.php?redid=317167 that a Twotter of Yeti Airlines crashed at Lukla because of suddenly appearing fog.
Reports say that everybody died and the picture does show no hope that someone survived.

May I correct you? Your source states that the pilot survived - although I read elsewhere that he is in critical condition.

Killed people were from Germany (12), Nepal (4) and Australia (2).
