    seems like it destroyed some buildings at the crash site as well.
    2020 is becoming to be a worst year for aviation in pakistan. 4 PAF jets, 1 army aviation air craft and today a PIA jet have crashed so far in 6 months.

    Plane crashed 1 minute before landing.

    It crashed on model colony damaged 4 to 5 houses but only one house has sustained substantial damage. There is fire and rescue services are trying to control it.

    Seem to be no survivors --- devastation on the ground too as it was a packed residential area right next to the airport (no urban planning.) Homes, cars, etc., crushed and rescuers trying to save people from under the rubble.

    Allah reham karay. Devastating news.

    Apparently the landing gear didn't open and the tower asked the plane to make another attempt (i.e. circle around) --- but somehow that resulted in a crash (perhaps couldn't get enough lift after the first attempt?)

    Crashed during landing approach to Karachi on runway 25L

    The aircraft was experiencing problem with landing gear extension and was performing low go-around.

    Yes the issue was landing gear apparently. There were 7 crew members also on board.
