Two Pakistani passenger jets nearly collide in mid-air at least two people injured
By Zarar Khan, Associated Press, 12/22/2004 13:15



KARACHI, Pakistan (AP) Two Pakistani passenger jets on domestic flights nearly collided late Wednesday, and one of the jets abruptly swerved up 700 feet to avoid the other, injuring at least two people on board, an airline official said.

The pilot of an Pakistan International Airlines flight with 179 passengers had to make the emergency maneuver because it was on a collision course with an Air Blue jet, said PIA spokeswoman Samina Pervez.

The near-miss happened over Rahimyarkhan in eastern Punjab province, around 440 miles northeast of the southern Pakistan city of Karachi, the spokeswoman said. The two planes were flying at an altitude of 37,000 feet at the time.

On board the PIA plane, one female crew member suffered a broken arm, and a male passenger injured an arm and an ear, Pervez said. The plane, flying from Islamabad, landed safely with emergency teams on standby at Karachi airport around 9 p.m.

It wasn't clear if anyone was hurt on the Air Blue jet, which was on a flight from Karachi to Lahore.
