747 “HEAVY” Alert: Rare Aircraft Spotted at Kathmandu

Kathmandu’s Tribhuvan International Airport is not known for heavy aircraft: B747s, B777-300s and A380s. While it may never see the face of an Airbus A380, Boeing 747s have been spotted in Kathmandu airport quite a few times (albeit rarely). Yesterday, Atlas Air’s Boeing 747-400 dropped by with some mail from Dubai.
