During the drilling organized by the TIA, and Civil Aviation Authority of Nepal (CAAN), a scene was created with a grounded aircraft in fire and full scale emergency drill was performed to rescue the passengers and douse the fire on it.

The emergency drill was performed to rescue the passengers and plane immersed in smoke as result of a fire in landing position.

The country’s only international airport remained shut for half-an-hour from 4:30pm to  5pm today to conduct the drill.

Nepal Army (NA), ambulances, Nepal Police and other people present at the airport begin to rescue the injured and take them to Grande Hospital and B and B Hospital by a helicopter.
