“Lack of speed altitude and skill all came together at the last second!”

Yeti Airlines’ Flight 691 from Kathmandu to Pokhara in Nepal on the 15th of January 2023 crashed killing all on board. The aircraft was an ATR-72. The plane crashed on landing at Pokhara.

Why did the plane crash?

The plane crashed on the bank of the Seti Gandaki River a mere seconds from landing. Video captured of the crash appears to show one wing slope down dramatically. Why would that happen?

Nepal is a difficult place to fly. But weather shows the flight had great conditions.

The plane’s nose was noticeably high before its left wing banks down to the left.

Amit Singh, an experienced pilot and founder of India’s Safety Matters Foundation told the AP that it looks like a stall:

“If you see the trajectory of the aircraft, the aircraft’s nose goes up, and the nose up would be associated with a reduction in speed,” he told The Associated Press. “When they have stalls, typically one wing goes down and wings are basically generating the lift. So as the air flow reduces, the lift generated is not enough to sustain the aircraft in flight and the wing drops and the aircraft nosedives.”

Professor Ron Bartsch, a respected aviation safety expert & founder Avlaw Aviation Consulting, gave an interview to Sydney’s Channel 9 and said:

“I’d suggest that the aircraft has entered into an aerodynamic stall… Possibly pilot error.”
