Yeti Airlines Flight 691 departed from the Nepali capital of Kathmandu on Sunday morning. It was supposed to be a 25-minute trip to Pokhara, a city about 125 miles west that is popular with tourists. But authorities were alerted that the plane had plummeted into a gorge 30 minutes after takeoff and about a mile away from the two-week-old airport in Pokhara.
No one survived, authorities said Monday, and authorities on the ground were still sifting through the wreckage to piece together why the aircraft went down.
“Our thoughts are with the families of those on board,” State Department spokesman Ned Price said in a Wednesday briefing. “The United States stands ready to support Nepal in any way we can at this difficult hour.”
