Kathmandu skies

Slightly Bemused writes:

I have a colleague flying to Nepal as part of the international aid response to the earthquake. His plane is currently circling south of Kathmandu as the congestion delays flights – he will land 3 hours late, by the look of things. I just took a quick screen grab off flightradar24.com I thought you might find interesting.
Kathmandu airport is struggling to cope with the sheer volume of flights in and out. Slightly larger than Knock airport [Co Mayo], it has not the parking areas nor the cargo facilities that it needs. So even as the needs are high, the ability to actually respond is limited by size. It’s a bit like an ambulance trying to get to an accident through a car choked street. Anyway, if anyone wants to know how they can assist, I suggest the excellent Dóchas website HowYouCanHelp.ie which lists which Irish agencies that are responding.
