Détails:
The DC-3 descended until it collided with a Karo Jabal Mountain, at an elevation of about 1185 feet msl.

Probable Cause:

PROBABLE CAUSE: "An error of navigation on the part of the pilot in that the aircraft was not as near to Karachi Airport as he reported it to be in his last "position report", which, had it been correct, would have placed the aircraft past the last range of hills. It is apparent, however, that the pilot continued to descend further after having reported last at 2500ft at 21.47PST in contravention of the 'standard letdown procedure at Karachi Airport' which he was practicing."



Opérations de secours
On December 14, 1949, under instructions from the Ministry of Defence, Pakair suspended all their services for an indefinite period of time.
