Lukla is a dangerous airport. It's high elevation, subject to all kinds of weather including fog, has a very short runway, nowhere to keep extra aircraft, and requires all approaches from one direction and departures in the opposite direction on a single short runway. Most pilots who fly there are very good. The aircraft are generally STOL aircraft, and it's just a very difficult place to fly to and from. The pilots generally do a maximum performance takeoff with engines revved to full power and brakes held until actual takeoff. A stuck brake on one wheel and/or a bad gust could have been responsible. There's no second chance since the end of the short takeoff runway is a steep cliff dropoff. The other direction is a mountain.

Something like that. Their were a few big gusts here yesterday also! Maintenance is also a big issue here, their is a distinct lack of care and professionalism in all sectors of industry etc and so unfortunately their are a lot of air accidents for the number of flights plus a shitload on the road due to poorly maintained vehicles.
