The flight hailed from India and was carrying 150 passengers. It was flying over Karachi when sudden flashes of lightning caught the aircraft making it prone to a major disaster.
Immediately then, the pilot initiated emergency protocol and announced ‘mayday’ to nearby stations. An Air Traffic controller from Pakistan responded to the call of the pilot and directed it through the heavy air traffic over the country.
