A PK 747, dont know which type made an emergency landing at Meherabad airport in the Iranian capital after it developed engine trouble flying over the city of Kerman. the flight was carrying 400 passengers and crew at was bound for Ankara according to AFP, now Im sure PIA have never flown to Ankara nor do they plan to so what was the flights destination, it oroginated in Karachi.

I believe this incident happened a while back. GF-A330 brought up the topic, although there was only one response. The plane was headed to Ankara.

I like British Airways! I'm not sure why, but I do! ;-)

According to justplanes.com, it was headed to London-Heathrow as PK787--so therefore it must have been a 74M--AP-BAK, or AP-BAT. Ankara doesn't make sense since PIA does not fly there.

Airmale where did you get this information from? Dont you think these kinds of extremely inaccurate statements are typical of the aviation reporting done in Pakistan....really bothers me.
By the way i was just thinking couple of days ago that i had'nt seen any post from you in many days...Good to have you back...
