PIA's ATR-42 aircraft crashes with 47 onboard

A Pakistan International's ATR-42 aircraft (inset above) flight PK 661 coming from Chitral to capital Islamabad crashes near Abbottabad this evening with 47 passengers and crew members on board. The plane on crash caught fire. ATR-42 were acquired by PIA to replace its aging Fokker Friendship aircraft and were used for its flights to its northern areas.

So far there no news of any survivors and 36 dead bodies have been recovered. Since the aircraft crashed in a hilly terrain, the rescue operations are taking time due to difficulties of area and night time

Singer turned religious preacher Junaid Jamshed and his wife were also on the ill fated flight beside three foreigners.
