JOMSOM: A Jomsom-bound plane of Nepal Airlines crashed near Jomsom airport in Mustang while landing Thursday morning. Some passengers were injured, but there was no fatality.
The plane (NA-9NABO) flying to Jomsom from Pokhara crashed on the banks of Kaligandaki river near the airport after it skidded off the runway while making a turn, according to the local police. There were 19 people on board including three crew members and nine Japanese nationals.

They have been sent to Pokhara for treatment by a Tara Air aircraft. All those on board were rescued immediately by the security personnel.
The area is popular with foreign trekkers visiting the Mount Annapurna area and Hindu pilgrims visiting the revered Muktinath temple. Fifteen people were killed last May when a plane crashed while attempting to land at the same airport.
