Plane hits helicopter at Nepal airport, killing three

ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) UPDATED TO INCLUDE STILLS Three people were killed and four others injured in Nepal's Everest area on Sunday (April 14) when a small plane crashed into a parked helicopter.

The Twin Otter aircraft, operated by Summit Air, crashed into the helicopter at Tenzing Hillary Airport at Lukla, known as the gateway to Mount Everest.

It i9s considered to be one of the world's most dangerous airports due to the shortness of the runway and its location surrounded by mountains.

"Earlier in the day, in the morning, we had an accident during the take-off route from Lukla," said Summit Air managing director Manoj Karki.

"The aircraft swung to the right and hit Manang Air helicopter at the helicopter parking area.

There were no passengers on the aircraft, only three crew were on board." The injured have been brought to Kathmandu for treatment.

Officials said the cause of the crash was unknown.
