All 108 passenger on board the Pakistan International Airlines plane had a miraculous escape today when the aircraft crash-landed at the Muscat International Airport due to a technical fault in landing gear.



"All the 108 passengers and crew are safe," Bashiruddin Khan, PIA country manager in Muscat said.

The Boeing 737 aircraft was coming from  Sialkot when it crash-landed.

The aircraft landed tilting on the left and the landing gear on the left of aircraft appears to have broken, Gulf News reported.
