News: B737-200 Bhoja Air Flight 213 Islamabad,Pakistan 20-4-2012

Crash Site

    A plane carrying 127 people on board has crashed a few miles away from islamabad's international airport in pakistan.It is feared that all on board have perished and from pictures and videos coming from the crash site it seems unlikely that anybody has survived the crash.It is quite early to suggest a reason for the crash but it seems that the bad weather around the area has been a contributing factor.Eyewitnesses have stated that the aircraft was on fire before it actually crashed.The accident has happened in a rural area,so more people may have lost their lives due to the crash.Bhoja Air is a small new commercial airline which was started about 10 years ago but closed because of financial difficulties. It recently re-opened.Last July, an Airbus A321 crashed as it was about to land in Islamabad, killing all 152 people on board.Story developing...
