Pakistan International Flight Carrying 107 Crashes Into Karachi Neighborhood from Zero Hedge
TDC Note – I can’t even imagine what it must be like for the people in the area. Having a jet plane crash in your neighborhood is not something most people ever think will happen.
In a shocking incident that may further impact the popularity of air travel at a time when passenger volume is only just starting to rebound from the biggest drop in history, a Pakistan International Airlines plane carrying 107 passengers has crashed-landed seconds after taking off from the airport in Karachi.
Video of the scene seems to show the plane crashing in a residential neighborhood just outside the airport, suggesting the crash happened minutes after takeoff.
