A newly-inducted plane in Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) fleet has escaped a deadly accident as its engine received damages following the bird strike on Wednesday. The Airbus A-320 aircraft of the national flag-carrier, possessing BMX registration, which was inducted in the PIA’s fleet a few days ago met an accident during a domestic flight from Karachi to Lahore after a bird strike after it takes off. Fortunately, the passengers of flight PK-304 remain unhurt in the incident as the plane landed back to Karachi after damages caused to its engine. The PIA spokesperson said that damage is likely to cause a huge financial loss worth $5 million to the national flag-carrier.
