Myron William Love identified as victim of Nepal’s worst plane crash in 30 years
Myron William Love Death – One of the many victims of a plane disaster in Nepal has been identified as an Australian citizen. Myron William Love, 29, was a teacher, avid surfer and traveller from Bronte, Sydney. When it crashed on Sunday, the Yeti Airlines flight was going from Kathmandu to Pokhara (local time). Two more persons are still missing, adding to the verified death toll of seventy. Prime Minister Anthony Albanese tweeted on Monday (local time) that the government was aware of the presence of an Australian on board.
“Incredibly sad news out of Nepal of a plane crashing with many passengers on board. The government is aware an Australian was on board and is urgently seeking information from Nepalese officials on the welfare of that passenger,” Albanese tweeted. Love’s friend posted a tribute to his friend on Instagram, according to press release. “It is with extreme sadness to say we have lost one of the best humans I have ever known,” a Sydney-based artist posted under the Instagram username lesjak atton.
Killed 167 people
Given that the weather was reported as clear during the flight, the cause of the disaster is unknown. The cockpit voice recorder and flight data recorder of the aircraft have been located, which should help to shed some light on how the incident occurred. Since an Airbus A300 from Pakistan International Airlines crashed into a hillside in 1992 and killed 167 people, this tragedy has been Nepal’s deadliest aviation accident. On Tuesday morning, the hunt for the two missing people will begin again (local time).

The 22 victims of the Sunday plane crash in Nepal’s remote Mustang area, including four Indians, have been taken to Kathmandu, where their lifeless remains will be returned to their families on Tuesday following the post-mortem. In addition to a three-person Nepali crew, the Canadian-built turboprop Twin Otter 9N-AET plane’s passengers included four Indians, two Germans, and 13 Nepalis when it crashed minutes after taking off from the tourist destination of Pokhara, according to officials. 21 bodies were found by rescuers on Monday at the Tara Air plane’s crash site. The last body was also pulled from the wreckage on Tuesday.
Ashok Kumar Tripathy, his wife Vaibhavi Bandekar (Tripathy), and their children Dhanush and Ritika have been named as the four Indian victims by Tara Air. The family’s home was in Thane, which is close to Mumbai. Prem Nath Thakur, general manager of Tribhuvan International Airport (TIA), claims that the bodies of 10 victims arrived on Monday evening, while the bodies of the other 12 victims arrived via helicopter on Tuesday. For post-mortem tests, all the bodies have been transported to the Tribhuvan University Teaching Hospital. After the post-mortem, the bodies will be given to the victims’ relatives, the official stated.
A group of seasoned foreign and national mountain guides also recovered the plane’s black box from the disaster site on Tuesday, and they will send it to Kathmandu. Radio broadcasts as well as other sounds in the cockpit, including pilot chats and engine noises, are recorded by the black box, also referred to as the cockpit voice recorder. Modern aircraft are equipped with two black boxes, one of which is the flight data recorder, which keeps track of more than 80 different pieces of data, including speed, altitude, and direction as well as pilot activities and the operation of critical systems.
The black box may contain crucial information about the collision that killed all 22 aboard. According to sources, the government has established a five-person commission of inquiry under the direction of senior aeronautical engineer Ratish Chandra Lal Suman to determine what caused the Tara Air jet to crash. After the first investigation revealed that severe weather was the primary factor in Sunday’s jet disaster, the government tightened flight permission regulations for airlines by requiring that the weather be clear along the whole route.
