Unfallbericht:
Tara Air flight 197, a DHC-6 Twin Otter 300, impacted a mountainside at 14500 feet while on a domestic flight from Pokhara to Jomsom, Nepal. All 22 occupants suffered fatal injuries.
The flight was the first of five daily Tara Air flights from Pokhara to Jomsom, scheduled to depart at 06:15 hours. The flight was delayed because the Lete Pass on the route was covered up with clouds. The Twin Otter finally departed at 09:55, after two aircraft of Summit Air had departed for Jomsom. The flight took off from runway 04 and made a left-hand turn to follow the valley/pass on a heading of about 300. About 10:06 the flight turned to the north towards Jomsom until it struck the side of a mountain.
