ISLAMABAD (92 News) – Minister for Aviation Ghulam Sarwar Khan on Tuesday presented the preliminary report of the tragic plane crash in the National Assembly (NA). Presenting the interim report of the tragic plane crash in the NA, the minister has said that the crash of Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) plane in Karachi last month took place due to human error. He said that both the pilot and the Air Traffic Control did not follow the established norms and procedures. The aviation minister said the pilot ignored the instructions regarding high altitude of the plane whilst the Air Traffic Control did not inform the pilot about the engines that got damaged after the first landing attempt. Ghulam Sarwar said there was no technical fault in the plane and it was fully fit for the flight. He said the plane took six flights including one to Sharjah from the May 7 to May 22. He said the pilot and the co-pilot were experienced and medically fit to operate the flight. He said the inquiry has been carried out in the most fair, free and transparent manner. “The inquiry board also included ten foreigners. The law will take its course against the responsible persons still alive,” he added. Ghulam Sarwar Khan assured that a complete report into the tragic incident will be presented before the house this year. He categorically stated that PIA will not be privatized but its restructuring will be done to revive its old glory.
