THE CELEBRITY ON BOARD & WHAT THE PILOT SAID BEFORE THE PLANE CRASH.

More than 100 passengers were on the flight travelling from Lahore to Karachi Airport when it crashed into a residential area and exploded into flames.

The city’s mayor Waseem Akhtar said: “At the moment we have the view that there will be no survivors from the plane itself but it is not confirmed.”

However at least one person is understood to have survived, a government official said.

Tributes are now being paid to Zara online. Tributes are being paid on social media to the “wonderful and hardworking” star, although her death has not been confirmed.

The pilot of a crashed Pakistan International Airlines jet sent a Mayday and told controllers the aircraft had lost power from both its engines on its second attempt to land, according to a recording posted on monitoring website liveatc.net.

After the aircraft reportedly called off an earlier attempt to land and went around for a second attempt, a controller radioed the pilot of flight 8303 that he appeared to be turning left, suggesting he was off-course.

The pilot replied, “We are returning back, sir, we have lost engines,” and the controller cleared the plane to land on either of Karachi airport’s two West-Southwest-facing runways.

Twelve seconds later the pilot called “Mayday, Mayday, Mayday” and was again cleared to use either runway.

There was no further communication from the aircraft, reported to be an Airbus A320, according to the audio from liveatc.net, a respected source for in-flight recordings.
