hi vjers sad news yestarday 28 jul 2010 An Airbus SAS jetliner crashed into a rain-soaked hillside at Islamabad, killing all 152 aboard in the deadliest air disaster within Pakistan.Airblue flight ED202 left Karachi at 7:30 a.m. for Benazir Bhutto International Airport, which serves Islamabad and the adjacent city of Rawalpindi, this is the privately held Karachi-based carrier. There were 146 passengers and six crew members on board when the plane went down in Pakistan’s first crash in four years.Monsoon rains at Islamabad, the capital, brought low clouds that covered the ridges of the heavily wooded Margalla Hills, at the city’s edge. The A321 airliner hit a rocky ridge at 9:45 a.m. and tumbled into a ravine about 6 kilometers (3.5 miles) from the offices of President house The crash site, near the Faisal Mosque, Pakistan’s largest, is accessible only by narrow hiking trails and rescuers explored the woods for several hours to determine that no one aboard had survived. The airline’s black box was found in the hills this evening, GEO television reported, The Margalla Hills rise alongside Islamabad’s most elite neighborhoods, about 10 kilometers from Bhutto International Airport in Rawalpindi. “The area is very difficult to get to by car or by foot,” Muhammad Rashid, a spokesman for the Edhi Rescue Service, said by phone from Islamabad.

Two Americans were among the victims, a US embassy spokesman said, but gave no further details.

The aircraft had no technical fault, Airblue’s Ahmed told reporters in Karachi. “The weather was bad but not below parameters,” he said. The pilot had 35 years and 25,000 flying hours of experience, he said.and pilot is a previous employee of pakistan international airline and he is international pilot

Airblue, Pakistan’s second-biggest carrier by market share, began flying in 2004, after private airlines were given licenses to compete against Pakistan International Airline Corp., the national flag carrier. Its owners include its chairman, Tariq Chaudhry, and CEO Shahid Khaqan Abbasi, a former Pakistan Airline chief executive. Ahmed declined to say whether others own shares.

The aircraft was built in 2000 and was leased to Airblue in 2006, according to an e-mailed statement from Toulouse, France- based Airbus. It had made about 13,500 flights and was fitted with engines made by International Aero Engines, a venture backed by United Technology Corp.’s Pratt & Whitney, Rolls-Royce Group Plc, Japanese Aero Engine Corp. and MTU Aero Engines Holding AG.

The country has a category 1 safety rating from the U.S.’s Federal Aviation Administration, meaning it meets international standards.

i have no words to say this is very very sad news for me
