According to reports, a Pakistan International Airlines plane with around 47 passengers on board crashed today.

Apparently,  the aircraft caught fire and crashed near Pipplian, a suburban village near Abbottabad. The plane was scheduled to depart from Chitral in Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa province to Islamabad. According to a report, the flight departed from Chitral at 3:30 PM (IST) and completely vanished from the control radar soon after the take-off.

The cause of this disaster is blamed on a disoriented pilot and unorganised management in the cockpit.
