Пакистан/ Исламабад - Самолет
Еърбъс А-321 (AP-BJB) на авиокомпанията Airblue изпълняващ полет ED202 от Карачи за Исламабад се разби при опит за кацане в планинския район Маргала Хилс край столицата на Пакистан. По последни данни на пакистанските медии на борда е имало 147 пътници и 6 души екипаж. Няма оцелели при катастрофата. Единадесет закупили билет са се отказали от полета буквално в последния момент. Според разказа на очевидец самолетът е загубил баланс преди да се разбие. Метеорологичните условия край летището наистина са били сложни (валеж, мъгла и намалена видимост), но е възможно при дешифрирането на бордовите самописци да се разкрият и други причини довели до трагедията.
