PIA Plane Crash: Case fall on CEO


Civil society too came into action over the tragic plane crash in Karachi, as an application was filed with the Model

Civil society too came into action over the tragic plane crash in Karachi, as an application was filed with the Model Colony Police Station, declaring PIA CEO Arshad Malik and others responsible for the death of 97 people, reported NobleReporters

The application filed by Rizwan Khanzada sought filing of a case against Malik, Aviation Minister Ghulam Sarwar Khan, PIA chief engineer and the relevant team.

The applicant says the technical team as well as ground and flight engineers should also be nominated as why “the out-of-order plane” was allowed to fly. Why the ground engineer and his subordinates allowed the plane to fly if the engine was out-of-order, he added.

Malik, Sarwar and others should be investigated over poor performance and negligence, he said, adding that those pushing the passengers into death must not be forgiven.

Earlier on Tuesday, Sindh Minister Saeed Ghani told a press conference in Karachi that the PIA and Civil Aviation Authority heads should be removed immediately.

Describing the committee formed to probe the PIA plane crash just a drama, he also called for formation of an impartial inquiry commission.

Malik is responsible for the crash, he said, adding that the probe could not be impartial as the CEO had already shared the details of investigation.

Ghani accused Malik of terrifying the people so that no one could speak up. The responsibility is being shifted to those who are now not in this world, said the PPP leader.

The Pakistan Airline Pilots Association (PALPA) members should be made part of the inquiry team, he stressed.

Similar views about the committee were earlier expressed by PPP leader Nafisa Shah as the Pakistan Airline Pilots Association (PALPA) has already questioned the composition, expressing their doubts over the possible outcome.

Meanwhile, even days after a PIA plane crashed into a residential area in Karachi with at least 99 people on board, families of the victims are waiting for an official communication from the PIA on delivery of DNA reports and bodies of their near and dear ones.

With the passage of time, families of the victims are losing their patience. On Tuesday, relatives of some plane crash victims took to Twitter to vent their anger and frustration on PIA’s “callousness, insensitivity and incompetence” in the wake of the tragic incident.

Adil Rahman, who introduces himself on Twitter as “Grieving Son of Wahida and Fazal Rahmaan”, says he lost both his parents in the PIA plane crash in Karachi on May 22 and now incompetence of the PIA authorities in handling the post-crash situation is adding to his misery.

Adil Rahman tweeted: “I lost both my parents in this tragic & horrific crash. I submit to Allah’s will. However the ordeal we are suffering at the hands of #PIA is inexcusable. Callous, Insensitive, incompetent…. #PIAPlaneCrash”

He slammed the PIA authorities for failing to develop a communication protocol for families of the plane crash victims. He wrote on Twitter: “@Official_PIA it has been 4 days, how hard is it to organize a communication protocol that is both accurate and compassionate. Why are we getting multiple phone calls at every shift change asking extremely crudely, “aap ko bodies mil gai hain?”

Even four days after a PIA plane crashed into a residential area in Karachi with at least 99 people on board, families of the victims are waiting for an official communication from the Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) on delivery of DNA reports and bodies of their near and dear ones.

With the passage of time, families of the victims are losing their patience. On Tuesday, relatives of some plane crash victims took to Twitter to vent their anger and frustration on PIA’s “callousness, insensitivity and incompetence” in the wake of the tragic incident.

Adil Rahman asked if the national flag carrier ever hired crisis management personnel to deal with such situations. He asked: “@Official_PIA isn’t this your job? Don’t you have any capable crisis management personnel? Why are you so heartless? You wake up the grieving family at 2:30am to ask the same asinine questions, aap ka naam keya hai? Aap ka rishta kya hai? Bodies mil gai hain?”

He asked the PIA to give some consideration to their pain and suffering and said that infighting between Lahore and Karachi forensic teams has already begun. He wrote: “@Official_PIA have some consideration for our pain and suffering. Infighting between LHE & KHI forensic teams has already delayed the victim identification process.

Earlier, the Airbus said it was assisting in the investigation. “In line with ICAO annex 13, Airbus is providing full technical assistance to the Bureau d’Enquêtes et d’Analyses [Bureau of Enquiry and Analysis for Civil Aviation Safety] of France and to the Pakistani Authorities in charge of the investigation. Technical support is also being provided by Pakistan International Airlines and engine manufacturer CFM.”

Earlier the runway inspection report mentioned that the plane’s left engine touched the runway at 4,500 feet and the right one at 5,500 feet. However, plane’s belly didn’t touch which enabled the pilot to take off again.

The Jinnah International Airport’s runway is around 10,000 feet long and there were marks of the engines on the runway between around 6,000 to 7,000 feet.

Pictures taken of the plane minutes before it crashed indicated that its Ram Air Turbine (RAT) was deployed. White puffs of smoke could also be seen coming from the engine as well as dark marks on both the engines at the undersides. Deployment of the RAT means that both the engines of the plane have been failed or failing.

Images captured by local photographer group, Pakistan’s Planespotters, appeared to show both engine cowlings of the A320 having scratch marks implying contact with the ground.

Also, the aircraft is pictured with its Ram Air Turbine (RAT) deployed with white smoke trailing from each engine. The RAT is a small turbine that can be manually or automatically deployed as a last resort electric source for the aircraft’s main electrical supply.

It is automatically deployed should the main electrical bus bars fail to gain power from either both engine generators, which only have power if the engines are turned on, or from the Auxiliary Power Unit (APU), which is normally used during ground operations or as part of a coordinated response to an emergency situation.

Meanwhile, a new satellite video shows the pilot of the ill-fated PIA plane first tried to land the plane on the runway, but then took it off again. For the next 20 seconds, location of the plane is showing over the runway. Then the pilot turned his plane left and continued to fly for another two minutes.

As the pilot said in his conversation with the air traffic controller that he had lost both engines of his plane, he tried to take a short cut to reach the runway again. However, the plane disappeared from the radar as the pilot was trying to reach the runway for the second landing.

The plane was just short of the runway perimeter when it struck houses in the residential area.

Arshad Malik, PIA CEO clears Air on crash.


The PIA plane, which crashed in Karachi on Friday afternoon, was “technically sound”, PIA CEO Arshad Malik told a press conference in Karachi on Friday evening.

Malik said that 2-3 days were required to complete the operation and then the Aviation Ministry would launch an inquiry into the crash.

He said he wanted the inquiry report to be completed as soon as possible but could not give a timeframe for that. He said that PIA would not interfere in the inquiry.

The PIA chief said 99 people, including passengers and air crew, were onboard the ill-fated plane and “we have reports of 19 dead in Civil Hospital and 22 in other hospitals” as of now.

He said the pilot established a final landing approach and the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) control room gave him a green signal to go ahead.

“The pilot then did a go-around. He said he is preparing for a second approach. “Now what was the reason for the go-around? Please do not speculate,” Malik said, adding that facts could be ascertained through flight recorder and the black box.

“Nothing can be said until the black box is found,” he said. After the go-around, the PIA official said, the pilot gave a call, saying he “will establish for second approach”.

“Something happened there and there can only be ambiguities until we receive the voice and data recorders.

Advertisements

I say this with responsibility that when it is received, we’ll know whether there was a technical fault, some other issue, some outside activity, bird hit, etc.

“When the plane lowered down, the ATC asked the pilot if there was an issue and the pilot said, ‘Yes, I am facing a problem,’ after which the communication was cut off.”

“The plane crash-landed in a street: it caused damage but thankfully no building collapsed,” he said. He spoke about the victims and the response to the incident.

He said that families of the victims were welcome to come and stay at airport hotels in Karachi that have been vacated. All affected persons are going to be accommodated at airport hotels and other government facilities.

He said the Safety Investigation Board “is a government body that will oversee the investigation” and it was “independent of PIA and will operate under its own SOPs”.

Malik said the monitoring of the aircraft’s technical soundness was done by the industry, which has a database through which “they keep a close eye on the aircraft’s health”.

“I do not wish to give any further information [on the survivors] and I do not want to give anyone false hopes.

Our emergency response centre is working round-the-clock to ascertain the facts,” he said. “I will provide more information as soon as we have it,” he promised.
