now landed in Kathmandu the Lighting's seems into Kathmandu was so spectacular we flew in between two mountains and everywhere is so green and looking peaceful underneath the plane enjoyed a beautiful landing [Applause] it can be a daunting experience when you first arrived at Kathmandu the pollution traffic dirtiness and over wildering pressure the first thing I wanted to do is visit in the power airline office to buy some domestic flight tickets she's actually booking a ticket for me to fly on the mh-60 and a wide 12 very special planes and power airlines and tomorrow I can fly them so the next day at 6 a.m. I arrived at a domestic terminal which is all very simple I booked myself and return flights from Kathmandu to Viera Nagar on the Chinese bill ma 60 be aware Nepal has two tier prizing system in their tickets foreign air pay a lot more than the Napoli's a one-way domestic ticket is around 100 to 150 dollars so it is not cheap to boarding the bus take us to the remote to voting for the plane the Powe Airlines on 2m a 60 these were gifts from the Chinese company ad I see now the Emily 60 is a more than version of y7 which derived from the Antonov 24 to operate in erupted condition with limited ground support and short takeoff and landing capability from Wikipedia of 57 ma 60 exported by January 2016 at least 26 weary storage after safety concerns maintenance problem or performance issues 6 outer were damaged beyond repair pilot were extremely friendly and accommodating they allow me to visit a flight deck and man a GoPro potato cotton anyone for a year

difficult was is there any challenging if I were to speak truth I don't want to fly this aircraft oh you really don't like the Tetra Oh a lot of things powerful like it depends on the purpose of the aircraft actually for normal pilots I don't think it's good M okay what is like if it is a new pilot or maybe he does need some experience for this one he doesn't have a good experience in this particular aircraft mmm I don't he saw okay I see candies coffins of a year I bought a round-trip ticket from Kathmandu to buy rawa a place I have no idea about before to travel in the POW in Kathmandu there's a really bad air traffic control congestion here so there's a lot of land in traffic and waiting for the Slavs from the air traffic the cabin was unpressurized on the y-12 it was so hot inside before take that you can always look into the cockpit on light everything like this by sitting directly behind [Applause] very incredibly large windows on the white wad which offer great sightseeing along the route the Lansky is incredibly beautiful after 40 minutes we're approaching by rawa a new runway in the airforce currently under construction by Chinese companies [Applause] so
