Firstly, if you don’t follow the news, a plane crashed just after take-off at Kathmandu Airport killing all 19 passengers and all crew. My thoughts go out to all the family and friends of those killed.News story on the bbc:

I thought I’d write about it because I felt a bit spooky seeing as I flew on the same route in April and also the British people on the plane were with Explore, the tour company I went with.

This is obviously a tragic accident, but could it have happened anywhere? Possibly. Seems it was a bird strike, and most places have birds. But anyway, don’t let this put you off travelling to this amazing country. The pilots are amazing being able to land at Lukla Airport, a small airstrip stuck onto the side of the mountain.
