Nepal crash: Video from inside plane shows passengers' final moments



A video has captured the final moments before a passenger plane nosedived and crashed in Nepal,killing all 72 onboard. 

The plane, a Yeti Airlines flight, was making a 27-minute trek from Kathmandu to the tourist town of Pokhara when it crashed into a gorge Sunday while attempting to land at a newly opened airport. 

"I saw the plane trembling, moving left and right, and then suddenly it nosedived, and it went into the gorge," local resident Khum Bahadur Chhetri told Reuters. 

Footage taken from inside the aircraft showed passengers chatting as the plane started making its descent.
