    I think their was also a report in which few other pilots also attempted same landing approach so its safe to assume that some pilots were trying to show off to each other.

    notice that right engine hardly has any markings on the bottom and it would not be visible on side pose. Where as if you look at the image few mins before crash has much more bigger and visible markings which is different from your picture.

    That is a very serious allegation, any evidence for this?

    Someone posted a landing approach of past couple of weeks where some pilots attempted to land from higher altitude then recommended.

    Landing from a higher altitude unintentionally is completely different than doing it on purpose to show off.

    The latter is reckless and criminal endangerment.

    This is what happens when PIA hires PAF pilots. You end up with hotshots in the cockpit who think they can do it all and shoot a descent from 10K feet direct to the runway in 4 minutes. Air Force culture is real, A320 is not a fighter jet but PIA pilots treat it like one. Its not just bad airline culture, its bad safety culture, and dangerous to risk the lives of people who trust you to get them somewhere safely.

    PAF pilots in PIA are almost extinct! That was the thing of the past until early 1990s when PIA use to be one of the best in the region. thanks to PeePeePEE and PMLN sowar parties who hired patwaris on parchi and got them fake pilot licences.
