Flight 211 of US-Bangla Airlines was a scheduled international passenger flight from Dhaka, Bangladesh, to Kathmandu, Nepal, that crashed while landing on March 12, 2018, killing 51 of the 71 persons on board. After the crash, the aircraft, a 76-seat Bombardier Q400 operated by US-Bangla Airlines, erupted into flames, and the 20 surviving passengers were critically injured by the impact and fire. It was the deadliest aviation tragedy involving a Bangladeshi airline at the time, as well as the deadliest event using the Bombardier Dash 8 Q400. It was first suspected that poor contact with air traffic control was to blame. However, authorities now believe that the pilot was yelling to crew members and smoking in the cockpit owing to stress and involved in unneeded, unprofessional, and extended talk even throughout the vital moment.
