Wow, what other accidents have happened at the Lukla Airport? Also, I've never heard of Gorkha Airlines, did they start up, or are they have they been around for a while?

Was it a takeoff or landing mishap?

Lukla has a very steep runway on the edge of a cliff. Looks like a dangerous airport. There is an interesting take-off video at Flight Level 350


At the bus station, buses stop. At the train station, trains stop. At my desk, I have a work station.
