KATHMANDU – A plane operated by a private airline in Nepal went missing on Sunday with 22 people on board, officials told Reuters, saying cloudy weather was preventing research helicopters from flying to the last known flight site.

Officials said the Tara Air plane had taken off from the tourist town of Pokhara, about 125 km west of the capital Kathmandu, bound for Jomsom, about 80 km to the northwest.

Flight tracker Flightradar24 said the missing De Havilland Canada DHC-6-300 Twin Otter with registration number 9N-AET made its maiden flight in April 1979.

“A search helicopter returned to Jomsom due to bad weather, without specifying the location of the aircraft,” the Nepal Civil Aviation Authority said at alarm systems.

Helicopters are ready to take off for a search from Kathmandu, Pokhara and Jomsom as soon as the weather improves.

The search teams of the army and police left towards the site.”

The airline said Nepal’s Plane was carrying four Indians, Germans and 16 Nepalese, including three crew members. She added that seven passengers were women.

An airline official, speaking on condition of anonymity, said the plane lost contact with the control tower five minutes before landing at Jomsom, a popular tourist and pilgrimage site.

The country’s meteorological office said there had been a thick cover of clouds in Pokhara Jomsun district since morning.

Police official Prem Kumar Dhani said a wild rescue and search team had been sent to the area near Mount Dhaulagiri, the world’s seventh highest peak at 8,167 meters (26,795 feet).

Nepal, home to eight of the 14 highest mountains in the world, including Mount Everest, has a record of air accidents.

Its weather can change suddenly and the airstrips are usually in mountainous locations that are difficult to reach.

  • In early 2018, an American Bangladesh Airlines flight from Dhaka to Kathmandu crashed on landing and caught fire, killing 51 of the 71 people on board.
  • In 1992, all 167 people on board a PIA plane were killed when it crashed into a hill while trying to land in Kathmandu.
