On January 15, 2023, a tragic plane crash occurred in Nepal, leaving no survivors among the 72 passengers and crew on board of Yeti Airlines Flight 691. A Facebook Live video taken by one of the passengers, Sonu Jaiswal, captures the moments leading up to the crash and provides a firsthand account of the event.

The video, which was taken by Jaiswal and his group of Indian friends, shows the plane's descent into the town of Pokhara. The friends can be heard laughing and joking, completely unaware of the impending disaster.

With no warnings from the airplane staff, the aircraft suddenly begins to shake, followed by crashing sounds, before the entire screen fills with flames. The video ends with shots of airplane debris covered in flames and smoke.

Independent media reports and local fact-checkers have confirmed the authenticity of the footage and the identities of the passengers. Jaiswal, a 29-year-old father of three young children, was visiting temples and planning to paraglide with his friends in Nepal's Annapurna mountain range.

His friend, Vishal Koswal, confirmed to the Guardian news site that the footage was from Jaiswal's phone and that the other men who could be seen or heard in the video were Anil Rajbhar, Vishal Sharma, and Abhishek Singh Kushwaha.

In an interview with The Guardian, Koswal stated that he had spoken to them via video call multiple times before the flight. He recalled that Sonu had been excitedly showing them the surrounding mountains during the call and added that Sonu had informed him that after landing in Pokhara, they planned to visit temples and then take a train back home in the evening.

The plane crash in Nepal is thought to be the most fatal in the past 30 years. The country's remote runways, harsh weather, and mountainous terrain contribute to the frequency of aviation accidents. Additionally, inadequate regulations and a shortage of funding have been cited as contributing factors. The European Union has prohibited Nepalese airlines from flying in its airspace due to concerns about their training and maintenance practices.

The footage, taken by Jaiswal, serves as a sobering reminder of the fragility of life and the importance of safety in aviation. It also serves as a final goodbye from the passengers and crew on board, who were undoubtedly excited for their trip and the adventures that awaited them. Their tragic deaths serve as a reminder to all of us to cherish every moment and make the most of the time we have.
