Pakistan’s Minister for Aviation Ghulam Sarwar Khan has said that the preliminary investigation report on the Karachi plane crash incident will be presented in the National Assembly, the lower house of the parliament, on Wednesday along with the reports of all the aircrahes that took place since the year 2010.
“I had promised the nation that I would present the report of the plane crash. The report is ready,” the minister said on Monday, adding that Prime Minister Imran Khan has also been briefed about the report and the findings.
He said that the findings will be shared with the nation on Wednesday along with reports on air accidents occurred between 2010 to 2020.
Earlier, Khan met the prime minister and briefed him on the investigations made into the incident.
On May 22, flight PK-8303 crashed in Model Colony near the Jinnah International Airport in Karachi, killing 97 people while two miraculously survived.
Following the crash, PM Imran and relevant authorities ordered a probe into the incident to determine why the plane had crashed. Airbus experts were called to Karachi a few days after the crash to investigate the incident.
According to local media, a preliminary report on the Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) Flight No. PK-8303 crash in Karachi has held the pilot and air traffic controller responsible for the incident.
According to the report, investigators said the pilot did not follow the procedure and was overconfident. The air traffic controller was held equally responsible for the incident as he did not ask the pilot to make an emergency landing instead of taking off when the aircraft hit the runway.
The report has been prepared from evidence gathered from the cockpit voice recorder data, plane debris and other evidence collected from the crashed site by the probe team.
Aircraft Accident and Investigation Board (AAIB) led by Air Commodore Muhammad Usman Ghani has presented the preliminary report on the PK-8303 crash to Federal Aviation Minister Ghulam Sarwar Khan. The minister is expected to present the preliminary report to Prime Minister Imran Khan tomorrow.
