The pilots of the plane that crashed in Pakistan last month made mistakes, according to preliminary investigation results. The report presented on Wednesday describes that the “focus” was missing from the pilots.
Earlier it appeared that the pilots had concealed that the landing gear was not working.
Also, other “mandatory procedures” would not have been followed by pilots and air traffic control, it is now reported. It is not immediately clear which these are.
The crash, which occurred in Karachi on May 22, killed 97 people. Two people on board the plane survived the accident.
These are preliminary research results, because the black box data has yet to be fully read to exclude other factors such as possible technical defects. The voice recorder from the cockpit of the Airbus A320 of Pakistan Airlines is also filtered out.
