Bird crashes into plane, forces emergency landing


A passenger plane (PK-612) made a narrow escape after a bird hit the plane just before it was landing at the Benazir Bhutto International Airport.

Though the plane developed a fault after getting hit by the bird, the pilot landed the aircraft safely and all passengers remained unhurt. They later exited safely.

According to the airport authorities, the plane was coming from Dubai and was supposed to fly back to Dubai. The accident has rendered the plane unfit for flying at the moment, the airport authorities said adding that the repair work was under way. The authorities said that the passengers, who were supposed to be going to Dubai in the same plane, will be sent through another plane at 4pm.
