Hi, I'm Jay Reilly, an expedition staff member of the 2002 Ama Dablam International Expedition with Dan Mazur and Rex Dougherty. Here's an update for you:
We are still in Bangkok! At the gate yesterday, approx 5 mins before the plane was due to leave, we were informed the airport at Kathmandu was closed. Apparently a helicopter had crashed on the runway. According to news reports, the Russian Military chopper snagged a rotor shortly after takeoff and went down with 9 people aboard. It is unknown if anybody was seriously injured. Rex is a former helicopter mechanic and speculates the snag could have been caused by a too sharp take-off and the rotor may have struck the ground. Bangkok was certainly worth the stopover though - we were put up in a 5 star hotel, fed the most exquisite Thai food (last minute calorie cram before the trip), and taken on a fantastic tour of the city by a local entrepreneur, Dak. A ride on a Dragon Boat (long skinny boat with a v8 engine mounted on a stick) was definitely a highlight, with temple visits and floating markets. Well, we're about to try and leave the city again! Stay tuned. Jay, Dan, Rex.
