Very tragic incident.

Our sympathies are with the relative of the dead passengers.



"Five people have been rescued from the wreckage of a private airliner crashed at Margalla Hills early on Wednesday.

One hundred and forty-six people including 139 adults, five kids and five crewmembers were onboard whereas 12 are those lucky people who missed the flight.
"

As till now 5 passengers are survived, Hope there should be many more survivors, everybody from surrounding should help the rescue teams to locate the injured.

News of Five people have been rescued later on denied. All 152 passengers on board are died.

The sad incidence took place today, took lives of 152 passengers other than 7 air crews (may be a pilot, co-pilot, a steward and four air hostess). Of course bad weather effects flying but till result come of final investigation, no body can say some thing. One critical point is regarding the quality of air buses these private companies are using in Pakistan is their quality that must be raised and brought upto the aviation standard. It is quite usual in Pakistan, buy few old grounded air vehicles, run them, earn money and no body will ask you. Although PM ordered an inquiry but it will not bring breaking news any more because we had an experience of such announced inquiries in the past. Maximum time these type of inquiries are announced to cool down the people temperament not to get the solution.

Indeed, we are for Allah and (soon) we have to return to him.

Airplane crash in Pakistan kills 152 people aboard


By MUNIR AHMED and ASIF SHAHZAD, Associated Press Writers Munir Ahmed And Asif Shahzad, Associated Press Writers 4 mins ago
ISLAMABAD A passenger jet crashed into the hills surrounding Pakistan's capital amid poor weather Wednesday, killing all 152 people on board and blazing a path of devastation strewn with body parts and twisted metal wreckage.

Initial Interior Ministry reports that five people survived the Airblue crash were wrong, said Imtiaz Elahi, chairman of the Capital Development Authority, which deals with emergencies and reports to the ministry.

"The situation at the site of the crash is heartbreaking," Elahi told The Associated Press. "It is a great tragedy, and I confirm it with pain that there are no survivors."

Local TV footage showed twisted metal wreckage hanging from trees and scattered across the ground on a bed of broken branches. Fire was visible and smoke rose from the scene as a helicopter hovered above. The army said it was sending special troops to aid the search.

"I'm seeing only body parts," Dawar Adnan, a rescue worker with the Pakistan Red Crescent, told the AP by telephone from the crash site. "This is a very horrible scene. We have scanned almost all the area, but there is no chance of any survivors."

The search effort was hampered by muddy conditions and smoldering wreckage that authorities were having trouble extinguishing by helicopter, Adnan said.

The cause of the crash was not immediately clear, but Defense Minister Chaudhry Ahmed Mukhtar said the government does not suspect terrorism.

The plane left the southern city of Karachi at 7:45 a.m. for a two-hour scheduled flight to Islamabad and was trying to land during cloudy and rainy weather, said Pervez George, a civil aviation official.

Airblue is a private service based in Karachi, Pakistan's largest city, and Wednesday's flight was believed to be carrying mostly Pakistanis.

Rescue workers scouring the heavily forested hills recovered 50 bodies from the wreckage, said Ramzan Sajid, spokesman for the Capital Development Authority.

"The plane was about to land at the Islamabad airport when it lost contact with the control tower, and later we learned that the plane had crashed," said George, adding the model was an Airbus 321 and the flight number was ED202.

Rescue workers scouring the heavily forested hills recovered 50 bodies from the wreckage, said Ramzan Sajid, spokesman for the Capital Development Authority.

The crash site covered a large area on both sides of the hills, including a section behind Faisal Mosque, one of Islamabad's most prominent landmarks, and not far from the Daman-e-Koh resort.

At the Islamabad airport, hundreds of friends and relatives of those on board the flight swarmed ticket counters desperately seeking information. A large cluster of people also surrounded a passenger list posted near the Airblue ticket counter.

"We don't know who survived, who died, who is injured," said Zulfikar Ghazi, who was waiting to receive four relatives. "We are in shock."

Saqlain Altaf told Pakistan's ARY news channel he was on a family outing in the hills when he saw the plane looking unsteady in the air. "The plane had lost balance, and then we saw it going down," he said, adding he heard the crash.

Officials at first thought it was a small plane, but later revised that. George said 146 passengers were on the flight along with six crew members.

The Pakistan Airline Pilot Association said the plane appeared to have strayed off course, possibly because of the poor weather.

Raheel Ahmed, a spokesman for the airline, said an investigation would be launched into the cause of the crash. The plane had no known technical issues, and the pilots did not send any emergency signals, Ahmed said.

Airbus said it would provide technical assistance to Pakistani authorities responsible for the investigation. The aircraft was initially delivered in 2000, and was leased to Airblue in January 2006. It accumulated about 34,000 flight hours during some 13,500 flights, it said.

The last major plane crash in Pakistan was in July 2006 when a Fokker F-27 twin-engine aircraft operated by Pakistan International Airlines slammed into a wheat field on the outskirts of the central Pakistani city of Multan, killing all 45 people on board.

Airblue flies within Pakistan as well as internationally to the United Arab Emirates, Oman and the United Kingdom.

The only previous recorded accident for Airblue, a carrier that began flying in 2004, was a tail-strike in May 2008 at Quetta airport by one of the airline's Airbus 321 jets. There were no casualties and damage was minimal, according to the U.S.-based Aviation Safety Network.

The Airbus 320 family of medium-range jets, which includes the 321 model that crashed Wednesday, is one of the most popular in the world, with about 4,000 jets delivered since deliveries began in 1988.

Twenty-one of the aircraft have been lost in accidents since then, according to the Aviation Safety Network's database. The deadliest was a 2007 crash at landing in Sao Paolo by Brazil's TAM airline, in which all 187 people on board perished, along with 12 others on the ground.

It is really really a very sad news. My brother uses to go every now and then from Islamabad to Karachi and vice versa. I had seen many transmissions on private channels where experts were trying to find out about any possible reasons that why an expert pilot having around 30 years of experience was unable to see the mountains ahead. The weather was not so bad at that time. A channel (Aaj TV) reported that they have come to know from a very renowned source that this unfortunate plane did not have fixed a very important device which can detect before 15 km that the plane has a danger to hit some mountains. If this news is true then the creditablility of the airline is also at stake. We have a psychy that we prefer to use private services over 'sarkari' services because we think that we would be more comfortable and safe in the private airline. Now when the PIA is constantly at loss, ans someone prefered to go through air blue just because he/she wants to have good service after paying an extra amount, will he/she trust airblue now?

This incident really made me sad. I've many questions, why plane was flying at forbidden area? Why not control tower stop the pilot to not go towards forbidden area? Why it takes so long to find black box and voice recorder? Why we don't have an equipment to handle such disasters?
