    Minister tells Senate ex-PIA CEO took plane to Germany

    If that plane was grounded, how in the hack it was stolen by ex-CEO who was on ECL and took it to Germany after flying six hours of journey. This plane is now to be used in a movie. PIA was destroyed by the government of Pakistan led by Nawaz Sharif the ex-PM. He should pay for the losses.

    Minister tells Senate ex-PIA CEO took plane to Germany

    ISLAMABAD: The issue of a ‘missing’ PIA plane was raised in the Senate on Tuesday with Minister for Parliamentary Affairs Sheikh Aftab Ahmad claiming that the former acting chief executive officer (CEO) of the airline, Bernd Hildenbrand from Germany, had taken the plane home while leaving Pakistan.

    Senator Tahir Hussain Mashhadi of the MQM raised the issue in the House saying he had learnt that a Boeing plane of the national flag carrier had gone missing.

    Confirming that the plane had gone missing, the minister said: “We have also formed a committee to probe the matter but it has not found any clue so far.”

    When contacted, PIA spokesman Mashhood Tajwar told Dawn it was not a Boeing plane rather Airbus-A-310. “It’s not missing. It’s in Germany,” he remarked.

    Mr Tajwar said the plane had been chartered by a British company for picturising a movie in Malta following which the aircraft flew to Germany. He said the plane had already completed its flying hours and was no longer airworthy. “It’s a 30-year-old aircraft and had already been grounded.”

    He said heavy expenses were to be incurred on bringing the plane back to Pakistan and, therefore, tenders were floated to dispose it of what can well be termed a scrap.

    In reply to a question, he said the FIA had conducted an inquiry into the matter but the findings had not been shared with the PIA.

    The name of the former acting CEO had been placed on the Exit Control List (ECL) after a number of charges of corruption against him, including one about selling a PIA’s plane to a museum in Germany.

    He had initially gone on leave and was later removed from the post. Apparently, his name was struck off the ECL as he is believed to be in Germany right now.

    Moby Dick has proved that ATR which crashed over Havelian due to failure of both engines in which 55 people including Juned Jamshed were travelling, . Pilot was forced to fly the defective air plane. Mubahir Luqman has investigated this in detail and according to his investigations, all ATR air planes flied by PIA were defective and met with number of accidents in past. Here he has caught the main culprits who had destroyed PIA. People said it was Punjab Air Line not Pakistan air lines and ultimately Punjabi at the leading roles (they did not hired on quota system as some choorhay yehan par bakwaas kartay hain) really destroyed the national air lines. Watch this remarkable investigations by Mubashir Luqman in the following video. Why the institutions do not act on such heinous crimes in Pakistan?
