The reason for the plane crash which killed around 49 persons in Kathmandu, Nepal is believed to be a communication error.
 
However, the cause of the crash remains unclear, and an investigation is underway.
 
The flight, carrying 71 passengers and crew, crashed while landing at Kathmandu's Tribhuvan airport.
 
Witnesses said there was a loud bang and that the plane shook violently while people wept inside the aircraft and chanted.
 
The flight data recorder has been retrieved from the wreckage.
 
It is the worst aviation disaster to hit Nepal in years.
 
The Himalayan nation has a chequered history when it comes to air safety, with more than 70 crashes involving planes and helicopters since 1949, the year the first aircraft landed there.
 
Most accidents have been attributed to bad weather, inexperienced pilots and inadequate maintenance.
