Troubled Skies of Lahore

Yesterday, there were not one but three incidents of ‘trouble’ in Lahore’s air space.

An Air Blue flight enroute from Islamabad to Karachi got one of it’s engines in problem, which, eventually was turned off and pilot decided not to risk lives onboard by landing at Lahore.

PIA’s flight [PK-203] from Lahore to Dubai was delayed when authorities heard of a bomb hoax. The plane was thoroughly searched and nothing was found. Later on, the flight left for its scheduled destination after several hours’ delay.

The third incident involved a bird hitting an engine of PIA’s flight [PK-315] as it took off for Karachi from Lahore. The ‘bird hit’ damaged two blades of the engine. Aircraft’s pilot safely landed back at Allama Iqbal International Airport with 185 passengers after 20 minutes.

What’s the problem with our aircrafts…

    Well nothing’s wrong with our planes. These things are prety normal. I mean brid strikes and engine failures are almost a routine global aviation phenomenon now.. although it IS scary.
