    Looks like landing equipment of the plane was faulty. From public, one will ever hear about the findings of investigation reports

    The aircraft landed on high speed and the landing was not on the start of the runway but it was on the middle . Thus the runway is short , the pilot failed to stop the aircraft and made a turn because the shahrah e Qauid e Azam is right on the edge .. pilot managaed to turn the aircraft to avoid

    Let’s not speculate over what happened and let the investigation take its course. It could any number of things. Allhumduillah everyone is safe and aircraft is not badly damaged.

    Look at the video of the actual landing and you will see this was completely pilot error:
    Too fast and too late touch down. Pilot should have perfomed go-around. PIA should fire these pilots and provide better training to their others ones. This is certainly not aircraft fault. intead of firing the pilots PIA praised them to “regaining control of the aircraft”…..After they were the ones to initially cause the loss of control!
