Yeti Airlines ATR-72 black boxes are found by Nepalese investigators

Yeti Airlines ATR-72 black boxes are found by Nepalese investigators.

The Flight Data Recorder (FDR) and Cockpit Voice Recorder (CVR), sometimes known as the “black boxes,” were reportedly retrieved by the Civil Aviation Authority of Nepal (CAAN) from the debris of a Yeti Airlines ATR-72 that had crashed in Nepal on January 15, 2023.

69 bodies have been discovered, according to CAAN’s most recent announcement, out of the 72 passengers on board. So far, investigators have identified 41 victims.

The challenging terrain, in addition to the fact that the plane fell inside a gorge, made rescue efforts tough. YT691 from Kathmandu Tribhuvan International Airport (KTM) to Pokhara International Airport (PKR) was being operated on January 15, 2023, when the Yeti Airlines ATR-72, registered as 9N-ANC, stopped on final approach and crashed into a canyon ahead of the runway at PKR. The airplane was shown in the incident’s video aggressively banking left moments before it made contact with the ground.

The old Pokhara Airport was shut down on January 1, 2023, and was replaced with the brand-new international airport.

On January 16, 2023, Yeti Airlines halted all of its flights. Six ATR-72s, including the plane that crashed, are in the carrier’s fleet. The aircraft’s manufacturer, ATR, stated that its experts “are fully engaged to support both the investigation and the customer” in a tweet on January 15.
