On 28 July 2010 AirBlue flight 202 departed Karachi International Airport, Pakistan for a routine domestic flight to Islamabad Benazir Bhutto International Airport. The French-made Airbus A321 was attempting to land in dense fog and heavy rain when it lost contact with air traffic control and crashed into a hillside killing all 152 people onboard.
Our Aviation team is investigating this accident in which a pilot with reportedly over 25,000 hours flying experience over a 35-year career lost control of the aircraft. No official report has been released identifying the cause of the crash. However, reports differ as to whether there was any contact with air traffic control which suggested there was cause for concern. We are examining whether faults with flight instruments, avionics, flying control computers or Enhanced Ground Proximity Warning System (EGPWS) contributed to this crash.
