Pakistan International Airlines A Pakistan International Airlines Airbus, A310 with nearly full load of passengers, cargo and crew from Toronto landed at the Birmingham international airport on Wednesday evening only on one engine but in balance and safe.

The airport was put under red alert and fire tenders and emergency ambulances meeting the aircraft at touch down bar ran abreast the stricken aircraft till it came to a stop near the terminal building, a message received here on Thursday morning said.

The passengers only became aware of the emergency on seeing the full-dress security and protective arrangements along the runway and near the terminal that ring the stricken aircraft with blaring sirens and flashing red and blue warning lights.

The flight, PK 790/30Oct under the command of Capt Junaid Yunus was en route Lahore on its weekly operation from Toronto. It developed some malfunction a few miles away from its mid-way destination over the Atlantic. Mechanical failure that was found to be beyond the control of the flight engineer on board, stalled one of two engines.

The failure of the flight to continue its routine flight disrupted several of the airlines' normal schedules and flight operations were re-arranged on an emergency footing.

Since it was not possible to ferry a relief aircraft with a spare engine to more than 11, 000 kms at once, the passengers were shipped to London Heathrow airport and transported to Pakistan on other flights. Meanwhile, the crew of a flight that had operated up to Birmingham under Captain Mohsin Raza three days ago and was to bring Toronto flight back home, was also bogged down at Birmingham.

A spare engine was later flown out of Karachi to London and onward Birmingham by PIA and after its replacement PK790 was expected to arrive at Lahore Thursday-Friday night.
