Karachi—A Russian-made cargo plane carrying NATO supplies was force-landed in Karachi airport by the Pakistan Air Force planes on Wednesday.
According to sources, the Pakistan authorities forced the plane to land in Karachi after it entered Pakistani airspace.
The cargo plane took off from Bagram Air Base in Afghanistan and was supposed to fly to Al Maktoum International airport in UAE. The plane entered the Pakistani airspace without advance permission. The PAF aircraft came into action and the pilot was given two warnings which he ignored and was then forced to land at Karachi airport.
Civil Aviation Authority sources said the flight RTR 1012 entered Pakistani airspace without permission. Usually this kind of cargo planes are used to carry Nato supplies to Afghanistan.
