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

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

Acquired from Comair in 2000, ex N320CA, but up for sale by the time of this shot. The airline had temporarily suspended flying just a few days before when their only operational aircraft, a Fokker 100, was grounded. The Saab was ferried to Linköping for maintenance in 5.08 and stored, then to Solinair as S5-BBS in 6.11

Four out of six Buddha Beechcraft at rest. At this time they had two 1900Cs (since sold) and four of the bigger 1900Ds, but ATRs were later added to the fleet. The airline is well known for providing Himalaya sight-seeing flights as well as regional services

Taxiing out for the return leg to DAC after the first ever service to KTM by this private Bangladeshi airline. The MD-80 was originally a Korean Air machine and was obtained from Lion Air (ex PK-LMF) earlier that month. GMG had hoped to expand service to Singapore and the UK in 2010 but in 2012 the airline's operations were suspended
