The Beechcraft 1900D aircraft was on approach to Kathmandu in thick fog when it hit a house and broke apart. No one on the ground was injured.

On board the twin-engine prop plane were 16 foreign tourists, including two Americans, who had just gone on a sightseeing tour of Mount Everest and the nearby Himalayas.

Three crew members were also on the flight.

    Not sure it broke apart unless they have stuck it together – I flew on 9N AGH last week.
