A Shangri La Airlines De Havilland Canada Twin Otter commuter aircraft crashed in Nepal on 22 August killing all 18 people on board. The 22 August accident happened in monsoon rain conditions. Rescue teams trying to reach the cloud-covered hillside where the crash took place have been hampered by poor visibility. This is the second Nepalese Twin Otter accident in two months: a Skyline Airways aircraft crashed in bad weather on 17 July, killing all four on board.
