The deadliest passenger plane crashes ever

Even with ever-improving technology, we seem to have constant grim reminders of the catalog of air disasters recorded in the annals of commercial aviation. Sadly, few survive a plane crash, such is the destructive force of an event of this nature. And there have been some truly awful air accidents across the world. Nepal is commonly known as one of the most dangerous places in the world to fly, mainly due to its mountainous terrain amid the Himalayas and extreme weather conditions. On Wednesday, July 23, a small passenger plane skidded off the runway during takeoff at Tribhuvan International Airport in Nepal's capital of Kathmandu. It's reported that there were 19 people on board but only one survived the crash. All passengers were employees of the plane's carrier, Saurya Airlines, and were taking the craft for routine maintenance. Images captured at the scene showed thick black smoke billowing from the burning aircraft. Only charred pieces of the fuselage remained when the fire was finally extinguished. This is far from the first devastating plane crash to occur in Nepal, where many more lives have been lost in air accidents.

13 Amusement Parks in the U.S. That Are Completely Free to Enter

A few even charge you nothing for parking and entertainment. Amusement parks are synonymous with so many wonderful things: fun in the sun, rollercoasters and carousels, games galore and delicious food. And all in a colorful, jubilant, family-friendly setting. The only issue? Joy like that does not typically come cheap. Or can it? Well, at these 13 amusement parks across the U.S., from the Golden to the Garden States, you can save on one very important front: entry. While the vast majority of amusement parks — including Walt Disney World, Universal Studios and Busch Gardens — require tickets just to walk through the gates, these resorts and parks do not. Of course, if you want to ride the rides or snack on the snacks, you'll still have to open your wallet. (A good thing can only go so far!) But if you're someone who's more about the vibes than the rides, this is the list for you. Make sure you scroll to the bottom: There's one very famous park that's about to go "open gate" with its water parks for guests staying on property. (Hint: It's home to a special mouse!)
