Yes, they say one person survived. Want to go to nepal and take on these flights. Makes me think twice. This has happened before not that long ago.

Was it the Kathmandu airport that was picked as the most dangerous in the world in a Discovery Channel (maybe History Channel?) show a while ago?

I'd love to see that landscape, and there was a time when I'd have done that, but I lost my sense of adventure as soon as I hit my mid 30s...
To me this airport would be a dream to see, maybe some day. I don't know

I remember that program. They did not call them dangerous airports but "extreme" airports. The most extreme airport they showed was Lukla-Tenzing-Hillary, Nepal.

According to some news reports here in the USA, 2 of those on that flight and killed were Americans.
