PIC reported “Lost both engines just before the crach… Mayday Mayday 8303…” Last audio from PIA flight 8303 that crashed today provides first clues on the tragic accident..
The Airbus had been flying from Lahore to Jinnah, which usually takes 90 minutes before it went down in the Model Colony area as it began its final approach to land at Karachi airport.
The flight declared a Mayday before it came down in a residential area called Model Colony, just short of runway 25L.
The crash comes as Pakistanis across the country are preparing to celebrate the end of Ramadan and the beginning of Eid al-Fitr, with many traveling back to their homes in cities and villages.
May God Almighty grant all the martyrs who fell victim to this accident a high position in Paradise & grant patience to their families.
May God keep safe all of us. Ameen
