Aircraft Update for 20-May-2016

302 - DHC-6-300 9N-ABB Royal Nepal Airlines Corp., Kathmandu

The wreckage of the aircraft has been salvaged (it crashed after departure from Pokhara in 2014) and brought via container to Nepalgunj, then to Kathmandu to the BP Museum. The parts will be reassembled for display purposes. 

The aircraft has historic significance due to a hijacking which took place on 01-Jun-1973, as a protest against the one-party regime that controlled Nepal at the time. Following the hijacking, the aircraft continued to serve Royal Nepal until its crash in 2014.
