Did the US-Bangla aircraft which crashed in Nepal skid off the runway before?
The US-Bangla Airlines aircraft that crashed while landing at Tribhuvan International Airport on Monday, killing at least 49 people, may have skidded off the runway before while landing at Saidpur Airport in Nilphamari on September 04, 2015. The aircraft from the 2015 incident is the very same Bombardier Dash 8 Q400, identified with the tail number S2-AGU. It skidded off while heading from Dhaka. There were 74 passengers on board but no casualties were reported. The aircraft’s wheels got stuck, causing it to fail to land in the parking bay, instead falling into the grass. Engineers were brought from Dhaka via helicopter to fix the technical issues of the plane immediately after the mishap took place. The wheels of the plane were damaged in the incident.

The Dhaka Tribune cross-checked with news archives for the 2015 incident with other news outlets and discovered photos from various angles, all of which confirm the identity of the aircraft. When contacted, US-Bangla Airlines General Manger Kamrul Islam angrily denied the claims. He said: “This is entirely untrue. People are intentionally spreading misinformation to malign our good reputation. The plane which crashed in Kathmandu had no prior technical problems.”
