Terrible news with a PIA A320 carrying 99 passengers and crew onboard crashing into a alley in Karachi.
76 confirmed dead and 2 possible survivors so far

Sad news. I saw on Instagram it was captured on CCTV. Also images showing soot on the underside of both engines just prior to the crash. I have no idea of the relevance or what that might imply.

The Aviation Herald report. I don't understand the pics after the go-around, with 'scrape marks on both engines' - the two 'go-arounds' weren't from a wheels/ground-contact situation, I think? EDIT: A no-landing gear gear first landing attempt speculated in TAH comments (they are usually entertaining)

Can you elaborate?
Are you suggesting something sinister?
Sinister? Goodness no. People have an almost infinite ability to get things wrong. And then others have the same level of ability at misreading their intentions.

I have first hand experience of self proclaimed experts interpreting images, and getting the most minute details out of them. Except that I knew they were wrong, 'cos I was there.

Ah, fair enough. Thanks for that.
Hopefully the truth comes out after the investigation
