    Conspiracy theory says

    1)Some say bomb blast on plane.

    2) Some say poor maintenance record of BHOJA AIR

    #3) Some say sabotage to kill some politicians or high rank army men as plane fell near rawalpindi GHQ

    Airliner crashes near Islamabad airport


    A plane carrying up to 127 people has crashed in a residential area near Islamabad international airport.

    Aviation officials said the Bhoja Air plane, flight BHO-213, was flying from Karachi to Islamabad when it crashed in bad weather near Chaklala, Rawalpindi.

    It was scheduled to leave Karachi at 17:00 local time (12:00 GMT) and due to arrive at 18:50 (13:50 GMT).

    Emergency teams were at the crash site, reported to be near Baria Town residential complex.

    Reports suggest the plane, believed to be carrying 118 passengers and nine crew, was making its final approach to the airport when the crash happened.

    There have been no reports of any survivors and no comment from the airline.


    Defence minister Chaudhry Ahmed Mukhar said it burst into flames before it came down a few miles from the airport.

    There were reports of severe rainstorms in the area at the time.

    Bhoja Air is a small new commercial airline which was started about 10 years ago but closed because of financial difficulties. It recently re-opened.

    After having turned their railways into shambles, even PIA ended up being accused of thinks one cannot be proud of. Looks like their transportation system is sliding down the drain.
