A PIA Plane Went Missing and No One Knows What’s Going On

Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) always manages to find its way into the headlines and mostly for not the right reasons. We’ve all heard of motorcycles and cars getting stolen but our PIA somehow managed to lose a whole Boeing aircraft.

Yesterday, the issue of a ‘missing’ PIA aircraft was raised in the Senate when Senator Tahir Hussain asked about a PIA plane that he heard had gone missing from the national flag carrier’s fleet.

Some reports are suggesting that the former CEO of PIA, Bernd Hildenbrand, had taken the plane to Germany.

Minister for Parliamentary Affairs Sheikh Aftab Ahmad confirmed that the news was indeed true and that they have formed a committee to probe the matter regarding the missing plane, however “it has not found any clue so far.”

What’s more amazing is that PIA seems to be in a state of panic as a PIA spokesperson told the media that it was not a Boeing plane but an Airbus A-310. He added that “It’s not missing. It’s in Germany.”

Justifying the whole missing plane episode, PIA official said that the plane had been chartered by a British company for a movie in Malta. Following that the aircraft was flown to Germany. He added “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.” The official said that PIA would have had to pay heavy expenses to bring the plane back so it was sold to a company in Germany.

Oddly, it is the same plane that is said to have been used in an Israeli film (not British) and was then sold to a German company for the price of a car i.e. Rs. 5.2 million. A senator had pointed out that even as scrap, the plane would have sold for millions of dollars.

On the other hand the ministry says that the missing plane was taken to Germany by the former CEO.

To sum it up, the upper management and the government have no clue about the missing aircraft. The ministry and the PIA have come up with completely different stories. Both government departments have either jumbled up their stories or are talking about completely different aircrafts.

  • Hahaha, that was hilarious. The article reminded me of the movie Pirates of the Caribbean.. :D Black pearl in the bottle, why is the black pearl in the bottle ?? :D :D

  • Yes the spokesperson of PIA is right, the plane is in Germany because the x ceo have issues with management and he will now settle the cost with PIA.
    This what happened when you devalue Pakistani talent and engage foreigners for our own kickbacks.
    Same happened with PTCL, Mr Walid Irshad former CEO have NAB cases, millions of dollars missing and the gentle man left like walk in a park.
    Thanks to Mr Rehman Malik and Asif Zardari.

  • A STORY OF CORRUPTION AND MIS MANAGEMENT ALL THE WAY. WHO CAN JUDGE WHAT IS RIGHT OR WRONG. LOOKS LIKE A LOST CAUSE , WITH HUGE LOSSES TO THE PEOPLE OF PAKISTAN, PARTICULARLY THE POOR AND THE DOWN TRODDEN WHO ARE GETTING TREATED WORSE THAN ANIMALS. IN INTERIOR SINDH FOR EXAMPLE PEOPLE AFTER 70 YEARS FOLLOWING PARTITION, STILL HAVE NO WATER,NO GAS , NO ELECTRICITY, NO HOSPITAL, NO QUALIFIED DOCTOR, NO SCHOOL , NO TEACHER , . FOR EXAMPLE NA235 (EG VIL MAUKRIA ) . EVEN NOW THE SUPERVISORS IN CHARGE ARE CORRUPT AND PLEASING ONLY FAVOURITES OR GROUPS WHO CAN BRIBE THEM FOR GETTING THEIR LEGITIMATE RIGHTS. MATTER REPORTED TO THE GOOD LADY IN CHARGE OF NA 235, Jam MADAD ALI and even BILAWAL BHUTTO WHO HAVE TURNED A DEAF EAR OR ARE VIRTUALLY HELPLESS. WHY SHOULD THESE POOR PEOPLE SUPPORT A PARTY WHO IGNORES THEM ???
    DISGRACEFUL STATE OF AFFAIRS.
