A Tara Air De Havilland Canada DHC-6/300 Twin Otter aircraft went missing in a mountainous area in Nepal on May 29, 2022. The aircraft is believed to be carrying 22 people, including three crew members. 

The aircraft, registered 9N-AET, took off from Pokhara Airport (PKR) at 9:53 AM, according to Flightradar24.com. The aircraft was bound for Jomson Airport (JMO). It lost contact with the airport tower at 10.07AM, Nepal’s aviation authority said in an official statement. Two helicopters were deployed to locate the aircraft. 

The incident was also confirmed by the airline. “A domestic flight bound for Jomsom from Pokhara has lost contact,” a Tara Air spokesperson told the AFP news agency.
