Accident: Tirke Dhunga, Nepal 24- Feb-2016 Sadly, the first total loss of a Viking Series 400, passengers and crew as 9H-AHH crashed while operating a scheduled service from Pokhara to Jomsom. The company reports 23 passengers, and 3 crew were aboard., and appears to be the 22nd Twin Otter accident in the country.

Probable Cause: The Commission concludes that the probable cause of this accident was the fact that despite of unfavourable weather conditions, the crew's repeated decision to enter into cloud during VFR flight and their deviation from the normal track due to loss of situational awareness aggravated by spatial disorientation leading to CFIT accident.
