Used as the jumping-off point for Everest treks, at 9380ft, Lukla airport is the third-highest in the world. The parking apron has room for only four aircraft but turn-around times are no more than 10 minutes. The weather always closes in during the afternoon so flight operations cease at about 1400. In the background can be seen our overnight accommodation, the Buddha Lodge

If you look carefully you will see a Twin Otter (Yeti Airlines 9N-AET) on finals to this extraordinary airport. The runway is a 1700ft strip running 12% uphill, on the edge of a deep ravine and ending at a sheer mountain wall. All landings are uphill (06), all take-offs downhill (24). Only captains with at least seven years' experience are allowed to fly there

Only the deflated right tyre belies the fact that this nice old Avro had already been stored for about four years at the time of this shot. Delivered new to Nepal in 3.70 and still stored at last report. Sister-ship 9N-AAU was also seen, on the dump in original Royal Nepal colours

This exotic machine was one of a pair of Y12s seen at Pokhara, performing services to Jomson in Nepal's Mustang kingdom, at 8,800ft known as one of the most dangerous airports in the world and therefore a flight-sim favourite. First served Aero Bengal as S2-AAR from 1998, moving to Nepal in 05.07 but since became B-3842 with China Flying Dragon Aviation. Has "Made in China" embossed proudly across the control yoke!

The very friendly Sita Air provided an exciting ride up to Lukla, the third-highest airport in the world, giving me the opportunity to make a video which later went out via AirlineHobby. However tragically the sister aircraft in which I flew crashed on 28.9.12 and the company was closed down

One of a pair of M-28s operated by the (Royal) Nepal Army Air Wing. RAN-41 was delivered in 10.02 and this one in early 2004. Note the Islander behind, used on surveillance duties - again there are two but it is impossible to tell externally which is which as they carry no identifying marks
