PIA aircraft’s windscreen cracks mid-air
ISLAMABAD: A Pakistan International Airline (PIA) flight PK-370 landed safely at the Islamabad International Airport early on Saturday after its windscreen cracked mid-air owing to low pressure of oxygen, ARY News reported.
According to PIA officials, the cabin of the plane heading from Karachi to Islamabad experienced a drop in pressure of oxygen mid-air. As a result, a windscreen of the plane developed cracks.
However, the pilot of the aircraft landed the plane safely at the Islamabad airport as all passengers remained unhurt.
Sources said the plane developed the technical fault mid-air near Bahawalpur.
It is noteworthy that a Lahore-bound PIA flight had suffered serious damage after a bird hit near Lahore last month. The flight PK-760 was coming from Jeddah to Lahore. The Boeing 777 aircraft received considerable damage due to the bird hit.
Subsequently, the aircraft was grounded for maintenance.
