The bodies of 22 persons killed in a plane crash in Nepal’s hilly Mustang district on Sunday, including four Indians, have been transported to Kathmandu, where they will be handed over to their relatives following a post-mortem on Tuesday.
Officials reported the Canadian-built turboprop Twin Otter 9N-AET jet crashed minutes after taking off from the tourist city of Pokhara, carrying four Indians, two Germans, and 13 Nepali passengers, as well as a three-member Nepali crew.
The cockpit voice recorder, commonly known as the black box, records radio broadcasts and other sounds in the cockpit, such as pilot talks and engine noises.
Modern planes feature two black boxes, one of which is the flight data recorder, which captures over 80 different types of data, including speed, altitude, and direction, as well as pilot actions and system performance.
The black box could provide crucial information about the crash, which killed all 22 individuals on board. The search and recovery mission were delayed due to the distant location and severe weather conditions.
The plane was discovered strewn at an altitude of 4,200 metres, a four-hour climb upward from Thasang Village Municipality’s centre.
