Pakistan: As per the preliminary report the pilot’s negligence is the reason for the plane crash on May 22 near Karachi, Pakistan. It has now come to light that the Air Traffic Control (ATC) warned the pilot to ignore the aircraft’s altitude and speed when it landed.
According to the Air Traffic Control report, the flight bound for Lahore Airport at 1.05 pm on May 22 had to land at Karachi Airport at 2.30 pm. At around 2.30 pm, the plane was 27 km from Karachi Airport. The aircraft then had to fly at 7,000 feet. It was flying at 10,000 feet. The pilot was given the first warning.
The pilot responded that this height was correct, instead of bringing the plane down a bit. The plane, which was supposed to be 3,000 feet in height, was at 7,000 feet when the airport was 18 kilometers away. The pilot was given a second time warning. Even then, instead of reducing flight height, I can handle the situation. Initial reports said the pilot had responded as he prepared to land.
At last, the airport of Pakistan International Airlines had landed in the area where people live when the airport was a short distance away. The flight had 91 passengers and 8 crew members. Of these, 97 died and two survived in miraculous ways.
