KARACHI: An plane of Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) escaped disaster when its pilot refused to fly the aircraft due to technical fault.
According to media reports, a pilot of the PIA reportedly refused to operate an ATR aircraft, the same model that crashed near Islamabad on Wednesday, from Karachi to Mohenjo-daro.
He refused to fly the passenger plane due to a technical fault in the aircraft’s engine.
The flight was due to depart for the historic Sindh city from Jinnah International Airport.
The source quoted the pilot saying that he had to turn off the plane’s engine at Mohenjo Daro, where there was no API facility on the ground to restart the aircraft.
The Auxiliary Power Unit (API) provides power supply for air conditioner and electricity.
The development comes a day after an ATR-42 plane crashed near Havelian town of Abbottabad on way to Islamabad from Chitral, leaving at least 45 on board dead.
