An investigation has been initiated into the matter.
On the 10th of November, an ATR plane of Pakistan International Airlines missed a disaster as it swung off the runway while it was landing. The flight PK-517 which was en route from Karachi to Panjgur—a region in the West Balochistan, while landing the plane slipped off the runway into an open area hence affecting the plane tires badly.
The passengers remained safe from any kind of harm during the landing. An inquiry has been directed by the national flag carrier into this incident which occurred one day after a C-130 plane of Pakistan Air Force caught fire as it made an emergency landing at the Nur Khan Base.
The plane was on a routine training when the incident happened. The fire of the aircraft was extinguished and all the crew members on the plane remained safe.
