Incident on 22 may, the crash of a passenger plane of airline “Pakistan international airlines” (PIA) near the Karachi airport was caused by pilot error. This was stated in the Ministry of aviation of Pakistan. Moreover, according to the publication New York Daily News, the cause of death of 98 people became irrelevant conversation about the coronavirus, which was attended by the pilots. The conversation distracted them from their professional duties and compliance with standard Protocol.
This was stated by the Minister of aviation of Pakistan Ghulam Sarwar Khan. “The pilots discussed the coronavirus during the flight. They were focused… They were talking about the virus that has affected their family. When the Manager asked the pilot to reduce altitude, he replied: “I got this.” It was overconfidence,” said the Minister. According to him, part of the blame lies with the Manager, who has not informed the crew about the damage that the ship was in the first unsuccessful attempt to land. “He had to inform them that the engines caught fire,” said the Minister.
In the collapsed Airbus A320, which was completely technically sound, there were 99 people. Managed to survive only two. When the crash also injured people who lived in the houses on which he fell. From traumatized died in hospital 12-year-old girl.
