ISLAMABAD (92 News) – The preliminary report of Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) plane crash held the pilot and air traffic controller responsible for the incident on Monday. In their preliminary report on the PK-8303 crash, the investigators claimed that the lives of 97 people held the pilot of PIA plane and air traffic controller responsible for the incident. The report also stated that the pilot of the PK-8303 did not follow the procedure and he was overconfident. “The air traffic controller is equally responsible for the incident as he did not asked the pilot to make landing instead of taking off when the engine hit the runway,” the report added. The report has been prepared with the cockpit voice recorder data, planes 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. Federal Minister for Aviation Ghulam Sarwar Khan will present the investigation report about the PIA plane crash to Prime Minister Imran Khan today. 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 Khan 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. Federal Minister for Aviation Ghulam Sarwar Khan had said during a National Assembly session that he would present the report in the assembly by June 22.
