455 - DHC-6-300 9N-ABM Tara Air, Kathmandu

Left the runway and over an embankment following a tire failure on take-off from Simikot, Nepal on 28-Nov-2017. There were eleven minor injuries, and three more serious, and all were treated at the local hospital.

This is the second time 9N-ABM has come to grief at Simikot. In 2012 it collided with an electricity pole while in a climbing left turn after take-off.
