PIA, CAA and ATC held responsible for Karachi plane crash

Investigation report of the Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) plane crash in Karachi has held the national carrier and the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) responsible for the incident.

According to the sources, an interim investigation report of the PIA plane crash has been prepared which was handed over by the President of the Aircraft Accident Investigation Board (AAIB) to the Aviation Minister. However, the report will be presented to the Prime Minister later today.

Sources said that the report blamed PIA and the CAA for the accident and also termed the procedures of PIA and CAA as failing to prevent accidents. Moreover, the report also blamed the cockpit crew and air traffic controller of the plane for the accident, while the cause of the accident did not rule out a technical fault in the plane.

The report also includes information from the aircraft’s data flight recorder, cockpit voice recorder, and air traffic control records from Lahore to Karachi.

It is worth mentioning here that Pakistan’s leading investigative journalist, Mubasher Lucman, was quite accurate while reporting the plane crash. On his official YouTube channel, Lucman had already given suggestions of the overhauling of PIA and the CAA.

Moreover, Baaghi TV has been one of the few news portals giving extensive coverage regarding the Karachi plane crash and as well as exposing the national carrier and the CAA.

According to the report, at the time of landing, cockpit crew ignored instructions of the ATC and the ATC also failed to implement their instructions. As per the sources, the equipment and systems of the crashed plane are still being tested.

It may be recalled that on May 22, a national carrier flight PK-8303 to Karachi crashed into a crowd near Jinnah International Airport, killing 97 people while two were miraculously safe.

The Prime Minister and the concerned authorities later ordered an inquiry into every aspect of the accident. On May 26, eleven Airbus technical advisers arrived in Karachi from France to investigate the crash. They gathered all the necessary evidence from the scene and inspected the runway, after which the investigation team left for France on June 1.
