PESHAWAR: A PIA aircraft PK-257 traveling from Peshawar to Sharjah landed safely after technical issues developed during flights to its destination.
Reportedly soon after takeoff from Bacha Khan International Airport, certain aircraft systems crashed. The system crash also affected the autopilot, auto thrust and other sub-systems.
After repeated attempts to close the landing gear, the pilot swerved around and landed back at Peshawar airport. More than 100 passengers were on board.
After landing, PIA engineers conducted a detailed inspection of the aircraft at Peshawar airport but failed to resolve the technical problem.
