Nepal Aircrash: Initial investigation blames heat and fire inside cabin cause for crash
Kathmandu: The crew of the aircraft that crashed on Friday minutes after taking-off from the international airport here had felt intense heat in the cabin.

A member of the Sita Airways operations office told that shortly before the fire broke out, the crew became aware of intense heat in the cabin. "There was very much heat and then the fire began. They were very close to the airport. After two or three minutes it crashed," the official was quoted as saying.

I heard people screaming, said an Eyewitness.

Some passengers in the aircraft that crashed near the international airport here on Friday were heard "wailing and screaming", said an eyewitness who recalled the horror.

Tulasa Pokharel, an eyewitness whose house is located barely meters away from the crash site, said she saw the plane with black smoke landing on an open space on the bank of Manohara river.

"That time I could hear some people inside the plane wailing and screaming. When we went to inform the police and other locals about the incident and came back, there was just silence. We saw the plane burning and all of them dead," she was quoted as saying.

The dead also include the crew - a pilot, a co-pilot and an air hostess. The Nepalese crew members are identified as Captain Bijaya Tandukar, co-Pilot Takeshi Thapa and air hostess Ruja Shakya.

The Dornier Aircraft 9N-AHA of Sita Air crashed at 6:10 am just a kilometre away from the Tribhuvan International Airport in Kathmandu, killing all 19 people onboard.
