A Boeing 737 passenger plane was destroyed in an accident near Islamabad, Pakistan. Initial reports indicate that all 121 passengers and six crew members were killed. Bhorja flight B4 213 departed Karachi (KHI) on a domestic flight to Islamabad (ISB). This was Bhoja Airlines' inaugural flight on that route. The airplane crashed, broke up and burned in a rural area close to the Islamabad Express Highway. Based on the accident location, it seems likely that the airplane was approaching runway 30 at Islamabad at the time of the accident.

Weather blamed?
When does a pilot say, 'Screw this, the weather sucks. I'm not landing here. I'm flying to another airport?'
I'm not really a proper reporter, due to the chronic lack of discipline, negligible attention span, and a certain juvenile difficulty taking serious things seriously.
