My Journey on Buddha Air 9N-AEE:

I fly on this aircraft from Kathmandu to Tumlingtar airport, which is pinpoint in Sankhuwasabha district of eastern Nepal on this Beechcraft aeroplane. Flightdeck is visible during the flight and seat were configured at 1*1 configuration, which means that every passenger gets windows seat. The takeoff, landing and cruising altitude journey were so smooth. I try to capture some of the videos of sight seen during my journey. Hope you will also like that.
