Narrative:
A BAe Jetstream 41 operated by Yeti Airlines suffered a runway excursion following an aborted takeoff at Bhairahawa Airport in Nepal.
Noticing a flock of birds in the front of the aircraft, led the crew to decide to abort the takeoff. Remaining runway length was insufficient to come to a complete stop and the aircraft overran into a field with tall grass.
Bhairahawa Airport has a single (10/28) asphalt runway, 1,510 meters (4,954 feet) long.
