Known as "one of the most dangerous airports in the world". The runway is accessible only to helicopters and small, fixed-wing, short-takeoff-and-landing aircraft. The runway is 527m long with a 11.7% gradient. The airport's elevation is 2,845m. There is very low prospect of a successful go-around on short final due to the terrain. This particular plane (9N-AHB) crashed two times, in 2010 (Lukla) and in 2013 (Simikot) but was probably repaired and returned back in service again
