2 Americans Among Those Dead In Nepal Plane Crash

  • Two Americans and two lawful U.S. permanent residents were on board the Yeti plane that crash in Nepal Sunday, the U.S. State Department confirmed Wednesday.
  • “Our thoughts are with the families of those on board,” State Department spokesman Ned Price said Wednesday. “The United States stands ready to support Nepal in any way we can at this difficult hour.”
  • The Yeti Airlines flight from Kathmandu that plummeted into a gorge in the foothills of the Himalayas Sunday, killing all 72 on board, was co-piloted by Anju Khatiwada, who had pursued years of pilot training in the United States after her husband died in a 2006 plane crash while flying for the same airline.
