Since the start of the COVID-19 Pandemic, planes have been crashing at an alarming rate.
Some speculate that it could be due to the fact that pilots are having adverse effects from the Covid-19 vaccine considering that are being forced to be vaccinated.
Well, a missing plane in Nepal was just found and unfortunately, the plane had a fiery crash that resulted in 22 passengers losing their lives.
The plane crashed at an altitude of over 14,000 feet and the plane’s parts were found scattered all over the mountain.
Nepal’s Civil Aviation is still investigating the crash to find out what caused it.

Reuters got the scoop too:
Nepal authorities on Monday recovered or located the bodies of all but one of 22 people who were on board a plane that crashed into a Himalayan mountainside on Sunday, officials said, and the government has formed a panel to investigate the incident.
Two Germans, four Indians and 16 Nepalis were on the De Havilland Canada DHC-6-300 Twin Otter aircraft which crashed 15 minutes after taking off from the tourist town of Pokhara, 125 km (80 miles) west of Kathmandu, on Sunday morning.
“There is very little chance to find survivors,” said Deo Chandra Lal Karna, a spokesman for the Civil Aviation Authority of Nepal.
Nepali soldiers and rescue workers had retrieved 20 bodies from the wreckage, strewn across a steep slope at an altitude of around 14,500 feet. They were trying to recover another body they had seen, officials said.
