Helicopter crash-lands at Peshawar's Bacha Khan airport

PESHAWAR: A helicopter crash-landed at Peshawar’s Bacha Khan airport, media reported.

Two of the four persons in the helicopter were injured in the incident, said official within the airport administration.

Fire brigade trucks and ambulances have reached the runway, which has been cordoned off by security agencies.

In a similar incident last month, two pilots of Pakistan Air Force (PAF) were martyred after their jet crashed during landing at the Peshawar Air Base.
It is believed that the plane crashed due to a technical fault. According to an eye-witness, the pilots tried to save the nearby civilian population and steered the jet towards the runway but it blew up during landing.
