Flight Details:
 Airblue Flight 202 was a scheduled domestic passenger flight which crashed on 28 July 2010 near  Islamabad, the capital of  Pakistan, killing all 146 passengers and six crew on board. It is the deadliest air accident to occur in Pakistan to date. The Captain of aircraft was Captain Pervez Iqbal Chaudhary. Mishap aircraft, an Airblue operated Airbus A321- 231 narrow-body  jet airliner, crashed in the Margalla Hills north of Islamabad during a flight from Karachi's Jinnah International Airport to Benazir Bhutto International Airport,  took-off from Karachi at 0241 UTC (0741 PST) for Islamabad. At time 0441:08, while executing a circling approach for RWY-12 at Islamabad, it flew into Margalla Hills, and crashed at a distance of 9.6 NM, on a radial 334 from Islamabad VOR. Air traffic controllers reportedly lost contact with the flight crew during its attempt to land in dense fog and heavy monsoon rain. The aircraft was completely destroyed and all souls on board the aircraft, sustained fatal injuries. May Allah bless their souls.
Pilot Details:
The sixty-two-year-old captain of Flight 202, Pervez Iqbal Chaudhry, had 35 years and more than 25,000 hours of flying experience, with an unblemished flight safety record and rating of A-319/320/321. The comparatively junior first officer (Sqn Ldr) Muntajib  Ahmed, a former F-16 Pakistan Air Force fighter pilot, had logged one year of experience on the Airbus A321 aircraft.
Aircraft Information:
The aircraft that crashed was an Airbus A321-231, registered AP-BJB, manufacturer's serial number 1218, which was built in 2000. This was the first fatal crash for the A321, and the second hull-loss of the type. The aircraft had originally been delivered to Aero Lloydand used by Aero Flight before being taken up by Airblue in 2006. It had accumulated approximately 34,000 flight hours in some 13,500 flights.
Early reports in the morning had stated that there were over 40 injured survivors, later revised at around midday to around five to six people having been rescued, before Interior Minister  Rehman Malik confirmed in the afternoon that there were in fact no survivors. Pakistani footballer Misha Dawood, 19, of Diya Football Club, Karachi, and former national athlete Zafar Saleem, who was director-general of the Sindh Workers Welfare Board, were killed in the crash. Of the passengers, 110 were men, 29 were women, 5 were children, and 2 were infants. Six members of the Youth Parliament of Pakistan were on board as were three off duty air hostesses, and four foreign nationals.
