The co-pilot of the unfortunate plane, which crashed in Nepal on Sunday, had lost her husband, also a pilot, in a plane crash that took place 16 years earlier.

The BBC tells it explaining that Anju Khatiwada had been a pioneer since she was one of only six women employed as a pilot by Yeti Airlines and she had flown almost 6,400 hours.

Anju Khatiwada was co-pilot of Yeti Airlines Flight 691 which crashed into a gorge near the resort city of Pokhara, killing all 72 people on board in Nepal's worst air disaster in 30 years.

Her husband, Dipak Pokhrel, was also a co-pilot on a Yeti Airlines flight before he died in an accident, and it was his death that spurred Anju on to a career in aviation.

Distraught over the loss of her, alone with their child, Anju's grief became her motivating force.

"She was a determined woman who stood up for her dreams and made her husband's dreams come true," said a family member.

The husband was in the cockpit of a Twin Otter propeller plane carrying rice and food to the western city of Jumla when the plane crashed and burst into flames in June 2006, killing all nine people on board.
