do you know what CFIT means? how can this mishap be a CFIT?

CFIT (controlled flight into terrain). It not only refers to crashing into a mountain, but also deliberately gliding your plane (crash landing) into some unprepared area, like this field.

So, the plane loses power, and the pilot glides his plane and in a controlled way (glide) lands his plane on the field. Hence Controlled flight into terrain. This is all assumption ofcourse.

The front landing has gone off.

BTW, the aircraft took off from PAF Risalpur.

Please pardon me. Is that definition of CFIT correct?
According to Flight Safety Foundation,

Controlled Flight Into Terrain (CFIT)
Controlled flight into terrain (CFIT) persisted as the world’s second leading cause of commercial aviation fatalities as of 2008. Flight Safety Foundation first helped bring the issue clarity and resources in the early 1990s, when it was the accident type that killed more people than any other in the industry. Essentially, CFIT occurs when an airworthy aircraft under the control of the flight crew is flown unintentionally into terrain, obstacles or water, usually with no prior awareness by the crew.


In this incident, it is clear that the landing was somewhat intentional and controlled, though the place, reason and method of landing was not by choice.

From the pictures, one can see that the prop was feathered and the aircraft, the aircraft came in a low glide-path with gear down and 'force-landed' in the field.

Amazingly a crash took place on 15th August 2011 too at the same location of Bhakkar. It seems that a pilot flying around Bhakkar on 15th August 2013 should be careful.

Damn, another female pilot involved in emergency. They are flying quite regularly these days.

Hope she recovers soon, the F-7s are on their last leg in any case..... the pilot is much more valuable.

I really admire PAF for having female pilots on combat planes, hope to see more ladies from my country in similar role too.
